Walsh eyes regional approach on biotech

Mayor Martin J. Walsh, in his first address to executives from one of the city’s fastest-growing industries, said Wednesday that he would push to expand the life sciences sector in Boston but also work with other communities to fuel growth in the region.

“We are home to the best hospitals and universities,” Walsh told about 280 people jammed into the Omni Parker House ballroom for a breakfast hosted by the Massachusetts Biotechnology Council. “We have Vertex on the waterfront. We have Dana-Farber expanding in Longwood. And we need to continue that growth and expansion, not only in Boston, but in the region.”
