Life Sciences Leadership for the Next Decade
Pennsylvania’s life science industry is an economic powerhouse employing more than 79,000 people directly and generating annual wages of $7.2 billion. The life science industry in Pennsylvania is also a leading source of scientific innovation that is improving the health and quality of life of people across the state and around the world through the development, manufacturing and commercialization of products across all sectors of health care.
These remarkable outcomes have been the result of entrepreneurship, investment by industry, and partnership with visionary leaders in government. But additional opportunities remain untapped, and there is the potential for economic gains to be missed if continued partnership, commitment and leadership are not sustained.
