The beginning of any successful science-based industry involves facilitating the flow of knowledge, and enabling cooperative research in order to create an environment conducive to growth, productiveness, and innovation.
When it comes to establishing a thriving and vital bioscience industry in New Mexico, the key is creating a productive public-private partnership. In New Mexico, great minds are at work all over the state creating some of the most cutting-edge bioscience research and technology. Essential to that collaboration is open communication and the free flow of ideas and information.
Focused on Innovation
Blessed with a wide array of cutting-edge universities and research institutes, including over 20 higher education programs recognized as top in the nation, New Mexico lays claim to a vast resource of highly skilled and educated students ready to leverage their knowledge and training.
New Mexico has also experienced a boom in technology and science-based business endeavors, including 24 new private companies spinning off from the state’s university and research environment. In fact, over the last decade and a half, university technology from UNM has spawned an impressive roster of technology-focused organizations, schools, research facilities, and private companies. Moreover, that is just UNM! Many more schools and organizations are also conducting their own cutting-edge bioscience research in New Mexico.
With the right strategies and vision, the state’s research and technology resources can be sold and commodified.
Over the last decade and a half, university technology from technology and scientific endeavors throughout New Mexico has built an impressive roster of technology-focused organizations, schools, research facilities, and private companies. Unfortunately, New Mexico’s pool of exceptionally talented graduates with degrees valuable in bioscience and technology often find themselves forced to leave the state due to lack of viable employment prospects. Thankfully, the potential for a prosperous and expansive bioscience industry in New Mexico means candidates can stay local and still pursue a fulfilling and successful career. We want to ensure that New Mexico is seen as a place where you can enjoy a career in the biosciences.
Working Towards a Brighter Future
The creation of the New Mexico Bioscience Authority is a huge leap forward for the state. By allowing the formation of a $1billion industry, the authority will facilitate the growth and expansion of an industry capable of employing thousands of New Mexico citizens while also nurturing bioscience research, innovation, and investment in the state for years to come.
