Jobs and Startups are Key to Making Maryland a Top Life Sciences Ecosystem, Says Report

Maryland has grown a life sciences industry from a base of research institutions and federal labs. A new report says that capitalizing on the potential for private sector growth must come from an increased focus on growing a base of talent and startups.

At the first day of its 2021 Bio Innovation Conference, the Maryland Tech Council’s life sciences division released a new report it commissioned from the Milken Institute.

“Maryland’s life sciences community is proud to be a national leader in life sciences discovery and innovation,” said Marty Rosendale, CEO of the Maryland Tech Council. “Our community also relishes the opportunity to get better, and this far-reaching report gives our public and private sectors a north star to follow as we seek to bolster our industry talent pipeline and our entrepreneurial ecosystem.”
