(NECN) – On the latest NECN Business Life Sciences Report – NECN’s monthly check-up on what's happening in the Massachusetts life sciences industry – Latoyia Edwards was joined by Dr. Susan Windham-Bannister, the President and CEO of the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center.

The latest jobs report last month for Massachusetts showed the state lost 1,100 jobs, but Dr. Windham-Bannister had some good news to report as new businesses come to Massachusetts.

Pro-Medior is one of those companies.

"We have some good news to report, with several companies coming to Massachusetts," Dr. Windham-Bannister said. "Pro-Medior comes to us from Pennsylvania with a small group of about 15 people, but it’s looking to grow very quickly. They’re doing some work in diseases caused by fibrosis."

Plus, the new accelerator awards have been announced, and the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center is helping the next generation be competitive and trained – Dr. Windham-Bannister talks about the latest with the school awards. There’s also news to report about the Life Sciences Center’s new training program for veterans.
