US biopharma map
Last month, Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology News (GEN) released its 2015 ranking of the top 10 biopharma clusters in the United States. The top 10 for 2015 consists of the same group as 2014, however there were some shift’s within the rankings. Most notably, the Boston-Cambridge, MA area replaced the San Francisco, CA Bay Area for the number 1 spot.

When these clusters are ranked, yearly, there are five criteria considered: Number of biotech patents awarded, lab space, venture capital funding, NIH funding, and jobs. As BaneBio is located in Maryland (as well as the Washington, DC metro area), it is no surprise to see our cluster rank at number 5.

The rest of the list contains many well-known biopharma clusters across the United States, and BaneBio is pleased to serve all of these areas as well.

Here is the complete top 10:

1. Boston-Cambridge

2. San Francisco Bay Area

3. New York/New Jersey

4. San Diego

5. Maryland/Washington, DC Metro Area

6. Greater Philadelphia

7. Seattle

8. Raleigh-Durham, NC

9. Los Angeles

10. Chicagoland
