Contribute to the Practical Application of Theoretical Advances
Thanks to the close working relationships of Connecticut’s world-class universities, businesses and healthcare systems, Connecticut bioscience companies excel at making the possible practical.
At The Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine in Farmington, scientists are discovering the genomic causes of human disease to develop individualized diagnostics, treatments and cures. At leading research and development centers for pharmaceutical giants Pfizer and Boehringer Ingelheim, researchers are developing new drugs across a wide array of therapeutic areas. And at hundreds of emerging bioscience companies all across Connecticut, entrepreneurs are making huge contributions to the field — developing alternative low-toxic treatments for cancers, leveraging artificial intelligence to dramatically shorten the time it takes to bring a drug to market, employing bioinformatics to analyze complex genetic codes and much more.
