Why This Matters

The District, the Swamp, D.C. — how about the Biotech Capital Region? The D.C. region is now the 4th largest life science sector in the country, only behind Boston, San Francisco, and San Diego. While the initial cluster was in Maryland, along the i-270 Corridor, interest and investment in life science space have bloomed throughout the region, reaching up to Baltimore in partnership with Johns Hopkins, and even stretching into Northern Virginia. More important still, is that six local companies in the region are integral in the search for a COVID-19 vaccine. What does this surge of interest in biotech and life science mean for development throughout the region, and how can CRE companies help fuel the life science boom? Join our esteemed group of panelists as we explore what this hot sector means for development trends in the D.C. region. Tune into this exciting webinar! Can't make the live session?
