"Arizona’s bioscience industry is committed to discovering, developing and delivering innovative medicines, medical devices and healthcare technologies that make life better for people in Arizona and around the world"

Learn more about Arizona's Bioindustry in this video produced by the Flinn Foundation.

Proclaiming Arizona Bioscience Week

On  March 15, 2018, the Arizona Senate recognized the men and women in our bioscience industry who are working to discover, develop, and deliver lifesaving and life changing innovations and proclaimed September 30 to October 6, 2018 as Arizona Bioscience Week.   (View the proclamation)

Thank you to Senate President Steve Yarbrough and Senator Sean Bowie for honoring our industry members and for helping AZBio celebrate 15 years as Arizona's life science industry association.

 

Life Science Innovation is blooming in the desert

 

Located in the heart of the Rocky Mountain Southwest Region, Arizona is home to one of the fastest growing life science sectors in the country.  Arizona's Bioscience Roadmap,  a long-term strategic plan originally commissioned by the Flinn Foundation in 2002 and updated in 2014 with the goal of Arizona becoming globally competitive and a national leader in select areas of the biosciences by 2025 has provided a framework for  growth and levels of collaboration that are rarely found outside of Arizona.

Global leaders including Bard Peripheral Vascular, Celgene,  Medtronic Tempe Campus, Ventana Medical Systems, Inc., a member of the Roche Group, and W.L. Gore call Arizona "home".  

Working alongside them, Entrepreneurs are creating innovative products and services in the form of therapeutics, diagnostics, medical devices, and health information tools.

Research Institutes including the Biodesign Institute and the BIO5 Institute are housed in Arizona's world class universities and  work in partnership with researchers and clinicians at private institutions including the The Banner Alzheimer's Institute, the Barrow Neurological Institute, the Critical Path Institute, the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen), and the Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center at HonorHealth. 

The latest innovations in patient care are delivered by nationally recognized physicians at Banner Health, Cancer Treatment Centers of America, Dignity Heath, HonorHealth,  Mayo Clinic, and Phoenix Children's Hospital.

Join us  for Arizona Bioscience Week, September 30 - October 6, 2018.  It is your opportunity  to connect, to engage, and to learn how life science innovators are making LIFE better today and for generations to come.
