Maryland is
Home to More
Than 2,500
Life Sciences

Maryland is home to more than 2,500 life sciences organizations that contribute nearly $20 billion toward our state’s GDP. Nearly 40,000 Marylanders are employed just within the biotechnology field, working to find cures to some of history’s deadliest diseases. In fact, Maryland was recently named the third-most innovative state in the country in creating a positive climate for technology and science-focused businesses, according to the 2020 State Technology and Science Index from the Milken Institute

A key constraint on these industries’ growth is the availability of skilled workers. All companies now have difficulty finding qualified employees. There is a critical need for new training programs to provide a qualified workforce for company expansions and for new manufacturing enterprises located in Maryland. They also need knowledge and skill sets specific to biomanufacturing and pharmaceutical manufacturing that are not typically taught in colleges as a part of traditional academic programs.
