Moving Life Science Innovations along the path
From Discovery To Development To Delivery
OUR VISION OF THE FUTURE: Arizona is a top-ten life science state.
OUR MISSION: AZBio supports the needs of Arizona’s growing life science ecosystem.
Arizona’s bioscience industry is growing rapidly and reached more than 36,000 jobs spanning 2,912 business establishments in 2021. Industry employment has grown by nearly 22 percent since 2018—twice the growth rate of the nation—with each of the five major subsectors adding jobs during the period. Arizona’s universities conducted $602 million in R&D activities in bioscience-related fields in 2020, fueled in part by steadily increasing NIH awards to Arizona institutions since 2018. Venture capital investments in Arizona bioscience companies increased significantly in 2021, and during the 2018-21 period totaled $565 million. Arizona inventors have been awarded 2,283 bioscience related patents since 2018, among the second quintile of states in patent activity. Read the Report: AZ-BIO2022 - state profile
