Dive into the Biopharma Space

Stay up-to-date on major biopharma news, deeper dives into specific companies and biopharma themes, and how it all relates to biopharma partners.

Cell & Gene Tx Startups by State

Large bio/pharma companies have an ongoing need to fill their therapeutic product development funnels. To do this they often acquire pipeline therapeutic candidate assets from much smaller, highly innovative bio/pharma companies. This creates an exciting ecosystem that many times starts with a small, start-up company with a handful of employees and a long-shot idea for a new therapy to treat a long-standing medical need.

To better understand which states/regions feed the most early-stage bio/pharma companies into this ecosystem, we screened our database of >1,000 cell & gene therapy companies & identified the states with the most CGT startups*. (see graph)

Figure 1. CGT Companies w/ 50 or fewer employees.

Interesting Findings:

  • Surprised that NY & FL have so many.

  • Not surprisingly, CA and MA top the list.

  • A bit surprised that MD has so many more than NC.
