The Henri A. Termeer Tribute Committee announced today the planned renaming of the North Plaza at Kendall Square in Cambridge MA, prominently situated opposite Genzyme Center and delineated by Linskey Way, East Kendall, Athaneum and West Kendall, to ‘Henri A. Termeer Square’ in honor of an industry titan and founding father of the biotech industry. Mr. Termeer unexpectedly passed away in May of last year at the age of 71. The renaming ceremony will take place on Rare Disease Day, February 28, 2018 – which also happens to be Henri’s birthday – to celebrate his legacy and many contributions to the rare disease patient community and a thriving industry that he helped build. The ceremony will feature prepared remarks from patient Linda Rubenstein, Henri’s daughter Adriana, Governor Charlie Baker, Cambridge Mayor McGovern, Executive VP and Head of Sanofi Genzyme Bill Sibold, former Head of Sanofi Genzyme David Meeker, and Committee Co-Chairs John Maraganore and Robert Coughlin.
