Bio International Convention Back in Boston

The convention, which was last in Boston five years ago, is a boon for the city and its now-blossomed biotech industry, but as a Globe editorial points out, one thing is a bleak spot: “… the plateauing of biotech manufacturing jobs, which have hovered around 9,000 for the last five years, compared with 21,000 in Pennsylvania, 43,000 in California and 20,000 in North Carolina. While companies invent drugs in the research labs of Boston, they tend to produce them somewhere else.” [Globe]
