Come to Maryland! We can help you enter, partner, and succeed in the U.S. market. Located on the East Coast in the prime commercial corridor between Washington, D.C. and New York, Maryland has the top ranked science and technology workforce; leading research hospitals; and more than 350 federal, academic and private research centers. Maryland is home to a diverse bio-ecosystem of more than 2,300 life sciences firms that benefit from next-door proximity to the National Institutes of Health, Federal Drug Administration, National Institute of Standards and Technology, Johns Hopkins University and the University of Maryland. And...we're surprisingly affordable.
First to map the human genome. First to develop a rapid test for Ebola. First to create an FDA-approved blood test for colon cancer. And playing an "outsized role in the worldwide hunt for a coronavirus vaccine."
Biopharma and biodefense. Genomics and therapeutics. Diagnostics and medical devices. Nutraceuticals and vaccines. Personalized and regenerative medicine and health IT. Whatever is on the horizon in biohealth and life sciences, Maryland is leading the way.
Our presentation will focus on why Maryland is a “Hotspot for Pathogen Research and Diagnostics.” We’ll cover the ecosystem for infectious disease research, including the efforts of key institutions in the fight against COVID-19: the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Johns Hopkins University and the University of Maryland System. Then we’ll zero in on the current pipeline of COVID-19 vaccines, diagnostics, and therapeutics.
