CLSA in BioSpace: CA Life Sciences Supports Nearly 1 Million Jobs
Nov. 13, 2015
California’s life sciences sector is the largest of any state with some 2,848 companies directly or indirectly employing nearly one million people and generating $132 billion in revenue.
And while biopharmaceutical and medical device employment in numerous states, including New York and New Jersey, has decreased in recent years, employment in California grew by six percent between 2010 and 2014.
Those were among the conclusions of the annual California Life Sciences Industry Report, which was released Thursday by the San Diego-based California Life Sciences Association and the consulting firm PwC US.
