Indiana leads U.S. in life sciences jobs and growth
From the BioCrossroads news room
Indiana has moved up the life sciences ladder and is now at the top of the leading national list. According to a Battelle/Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) Report "State Bioscience Industry Development 2012" released today at the BIO International Conference in Boston, Indiana is one of only two states (along with Puerto Rico) that have specialized bioscience employment in four of the five subsectors - Agricultural Feedstock & Chemicals, Drugs & Pharmaceuticals, Medical Devices & Equipment, Research, Testing & Medical Laboratories, and a new subsector, Bioscience Distribution (which includes agricultural seeds, biomedical equipment and supplies, and drugs and pharmaceuticals).
