Maryland BioHealth Story

Biotech discoveries are in our DNA. From being the first to map the human genome to developing the first rapid test for Ebola and the first FDA-approved blood test for colon cancer, entrepreneurs and companies are thriving in Maryland. The state leads the world in adult stem cell production and vaccine development, and represents one of the largest life sciences clusters in the U.S. with 500+ biotech firms, 2,260 life sciences companies, the NIH, the FDA, Johns Hopkins University, the University of Maryland, and plenty of funding and guidance resources.

This healthcare expertise and innovative culture also have made Maryland a leader in Health IT and medical device development with a number of growing companies focused on leveraging technology to improve health while lowering costs. Our Maryland Life Sciences Advisory Board is full of key leaders who support the growth of the state’s biotechnology and health IT industry sectors.
