NYC Metro Area Leads U.S. for Life Sciences Jobs 

The New York City metro area leads the nation for life sciences growth, according to a report issued Thursday by the city’s Department of City Planning and the New York City Economic Development Corporation. The region’s life sciences employment of nearly 150,000 surpasses second-ranked San Francisco by 14,000 jobs, the report states. 

“New York City is the gravitational center for the largest life sciences hub in the country,” said City Planning Director Dan Garodnick. “The incredible expansion of the life sciences industry in the New York City metro area is a testament to our regional focus on walkable centers, attracting and retaining amazing talent, and our unparalleled ability to support emerging industries.” 

Among other things, the report notes that the metro area is home to 5,060 life sciences businesses, and that New York City alone has added more than 260 life sciences R&D companies over the past decade.
