OTRADI launches interactive bioscience ecosystem map

OTRADIThe Oregon Translational Research and Development Institute (OTRADI) has launched the first interactive Oregon Bioscience Ecosystem and Map. The comprehensive database and searchable map showcases the breadth and diversity of Oregon’s thriving bioscience industry. The interactive map allows visitors to search bioscience companies by area of focus, company size, and location. It is intended to capture the broader bioscience ecosystem by highlighting the state’s incubators, accelerators, investors, research institutions, contract research and manufacturing organizations, in addition to relevant service providers.

“This interactive map is a powerful tool for accelerating the growth and success of Oregon’s bioscience throughout the state. It will function as a resource for companies relocating to Oregon, for investors interested in specific industry sectors, and for companies looking for partnerships or assistance as they grow.”
-Jennifer Fox, Ph.D., OTRADI’s executive director

Building on the nearly 200 unique entries, OTRADI will continue to update and evolve the map to Oregon’s bioscience sector as it continues to grow.  “The ongoing involvement of partners across the state will help maximize the value of this tool and insure that is accurately represents the state’s expanding bioscience sector,” Fox added.
