Life Sciences Promotion

Maryland is not only one of the world’s leading centers for the life and health sciences, but our state is uniquely positioned to vault to the forefront for decades to come.

As the state’s chief fiscal officer, Comptroller Franchot is extremely interested in ensuring that our state’s economy is vibrant and that the foundation for future economic growth is strong and sound. The life and health sciences not only create high quality jobs that support families and provide career ladders for workers, but they also create jobs and opportunity in other industry sectors. By building on our strengths -- an educated workforce, unparalleled access to federal labs and regulatory agencies, and the proximity of world class research institutions -- we can ensure our economic prosperity for generations.

Comptroller Franchot hosted a Life Science summit in December 2007. Attendees represented almost all Maryland economic sectors, including: health care, legal, financial, investment banking, construction, manufacturing, tourism, education, telecommunications, real estate, engineering, government contracting, information technology, biotechnology, nanotechnology and aerospace. In addition, the state’s federal and military institutions were represented along with local and state elected officials.
