BIOMEDICAL/LIFE SCIENCES

Like Advanced Materials, “Biosciences” is a general term that can pertain to a great number of things, all of which share the common link of biology-inspired, life-enhancing products and processes. Connecticut is home to 49 bioscience companies, with 30+ located in the Greater New Haven region. Anchored by scientific research at Yale, the region’s bioscience cluster includes both large pharmaceutical companies and small startups, developing new drugs, therapies and medical devices. These businesses often tend to feed from the research and innovation ties with higher learning institutions, chemical manufacturing (e.g. pharmaceuticals) and healthcare (medical research). With a state wide priority focus on biosciences, the South Central Connecticut region is ground zero for biosciences infrastructure of skilled scientists, technicians, lab space, plus a supplier network for everything from rubber gloves to medical-waste disposal. Much of the lab space is in proximity to Yale, the epicenter of pharmacological and medical research in Connecticut. These include Science Park, New Haven's oldest lab-incubator complex and Yale's 136-acre bioscience park, as well as 300 George St., a one-time phone company building converted to office-lab space now teeming with bioscience tenants.

The biomedical and life sciences cluster by far employs the most people in the region, making up almost 17% of the overall employment. Because of the strong healthcare and university presence in the region, it is one of only two clusters identified in the cluster analysis that gained employment over the past five years. While the concentration of employment, when compared to the nation, decreased slightly over the past five years, it is significantly still more concentrated than the nation, is one of the top performing clusters in the region and is a major focus of not only the region but the State.
