Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia
We have so many of the elements already in place here in Philadelphia. We have the expertise, we have the deep science, we have a labor pool that is already primed and large enough, we are a low-cost market relative to other places, we are accessible to patients and customer base both in Europe and domestically in the United States. We know our international airport is already an asset and that it is further developing cargo capacity and cold storage. I'm pleased this all makes Philadelphia a really competitive choice.
COMPOUNDS IN DEVELOPMENT
Philadelphia is a hub for biomedical
Philadelphia is a historic pharma center, home to 15 hospitals and a number of prestigious research universities. Currently 41% of Philadelphia's economy is directly or indirectly supported by the eds and meds sector - and growing.
The challenges of availability for both PhD level and biomanufacturing tech roles can be met in population dense Philadelphia which enjoys lower cost of living than other bioclusters.
Employed in Life Sciences Regionally
Our cluster is built on a solid foundation, supported by several renowned academic research institutions and hospitals:
