New Orleans/ Louisiana: Every Business in the Biomedical Corridor is metric-only
Biomedical Corridor Louisiana’s biggest bet on future employment in the state
Greater New Orleans has been a strong health services provider and active hub of research and biosciences activity, and the sector remains one of the region’s largest employers. Regional organizations are working to continue fostering entrepreneurship and innovation, while creating a thriving regional biosciences and healthcare industry. At the center of this growing industry is a 2.4 square mile area in the heart of New Orleans’ Downtown Medical District, where leading medical schools, universities, hospitals, and research institutions work to advance bioscience knowledge. Some key developments include approved LSU and VA hospitals, which will create 6,000 jobs and $1.26 billion in annual impact; a $90 million Tulane-LSU Cancer Research Center under development; and the New Orleans BioInnovation Center, a 66,000 square feet state-of-the-art wet lab incubator opened in 2011.
