Bolstering Innovation in Life Sciences

Maryland is home to two times more  federal labs than any other state, renowned universities, a prepared scientific workforce, and initiatives designed to bolster innovation and success in life sciences.

Maryland is one smart state – one of the smartest in the nation, actually. When you take a closer look at life science professionals, you see an even brighter picture. In fact, Maryland has more doctoral scientists than any other state.

A well-stocked industry talent pool continues to grow, thanks to leading academic programs all over the state, from science powerhouse Johns Hopkins University to Montgomery College and a host of other community colleges bolstering the local biotech workforce.

And several initiatives around the state ensure our workforce isn’t just educated, but work-ready, helping prepare life science professionals for every role, from the lab to the manufacturing floor.
