Fertile ground for life science
Colorado has become a veritable hotbed for bioscience. The state of Colorado is home to more than 400 bioscience companies. A leading, academic medical center, university research, a highly-educated workforce, an active venture-capital market, and increased support from state government have all contributed to this growth. (Of course, we think Colorado’s natural beauty and quality of life are important factors as well.) And within this burgeoning life science community, there’s a focal point: the Fitzsimons Innovation Campus. When combined with the adjacent Anschutz Medical Campus, it creates a 578-acre site dedicated to bioscience, biotechnology, healthcare, medical education and advanced research — making it the largest development of its kind in the state and one of the largest in the country.
Bioscience 1 houses a bioscience incubator program for early stage bioscience companies and an accelerator for growing, more mature companies. The bioscience program includes facilities (plug & play labs/offices and build-to-suit) and programmatic support for early stage bioscience companies. [Read more… ]
Bioscience East is a 25,000 square-foot, single-story building at 1999 N. Fitzsimons Parkway in Aurora.
The new Bioscience 2 building, scheduled to open in August, 2015, will not only be home to the University’s innovative bioengineering program, it will provide a unique opportunity for commercial bioscience companies to interact on a daily basis with highly talented students from the university.
