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 with over 34,000 jobs spanning over 2,000 business establishments in 2020. The industry’s job base grew 5.4% in Arizona from 2018-2020, more than tripling the U.S. growth rate of 1.4%. Arizona’s universities conducted nearly $623 million in R&D activities in bioscience-related fields in 2020, fueled in part by steadily increasing NIH awards to Arizona institutions since 2016. Venture capital investments in Arizona bioscience companies increased again in 2021, and during the 2018-2021 period totaled $532 million.
