Access One of the Largest Life Sciences Hubs on the East Coast
The Commonwealth is home to many internationally recognized research and development facilities. These federally funded and private facilities, along with Virginia’s prestigious research universities, give companies direct access to cutting-edge technology and some of the world’s leading researchers.
Virginia’s location between the major life science clusters in Research Triangle Park and the D.C. Metro area provides access to one of the largest life sciences hubs on the East Coast. The Commonwealth’s proximity to key federal agencies, including NIH, DARPA, FDA, and NSF, is a strategic advantage for companies. Combined with existing industry concentrations around research institutions and population centers and its leading position in IT, Virginia paves the way for the future of life sciences in health IT and personalized medicine.
