Bioscience Companies and Projects

Goals

To establish some of the bioscience companies and bioscience projects happening in Connecticut.

Early Findings

UConn Health Center

  • In the past decade, Connecticut has been on the forefront in creating bioscience projects that have attracted entrepreneurs who have continued to fund more projects such as the enhancement of UConn Health Center.
  • The UConn Technology Incubation Program is a quality lab space that supports start-up projects.
  • Incubator Lab

  • The Jackson Laboratory was expanded into Connecticut and has supported projects such as CBIF, which has helped narrow the gap created by the loss of employment in the big pharma companies such as BMS, Bayer, and Pfizer.
  • The Jackson Laboratory expansion into Connecticut also helped to overcome the 2008 recession. Through the years, the lab has supported many projects such as Genomic Medicine facility’s various collaborations with others such as UConn as well as Connecticut Children’s Medical Center.
  • The lab has also supported the expansion of BioCT’s CURE Innovation Commons, as well as a bioscience incubator that has been occupying ex-Pfizer space.
