Florida Biotechnology

Florida is home to more than 260 biotech companies and world-renowned R&D institutes specializing in therapeutics, diagnostics, industrial/ag biotech and other areas. Florida has the science, talent, and support structure biotech need to succeed.

“Florida has a very robust life sciences community. Over 10% of the biotech companies within the country reside here in Florida. We’re very well connected throughout the state and Florida is a very large state so we have a lot of resources we can tap into. We have a great location in Gainesville, right next to the University of Florida, one of the top research institutions in the nation. We also have the resources of Santa Fe college, which offers a degree in biotech and has recently been named the number one community college in the country.”
