Boulder Companies: "Biotechs progressing toward goals"

Quoting from the article mentioning the CBSA:

"A handful of area biotechnology firms are moving full steam ahead, bucking a national trend that has seen many cash-strapped companies in the field close down for lack of funding. Those companies include Boulder-based AmideBio LLC, which is creating new, natural material which could revolutionize Alzheimer's research. Boulder-based miRagen Therapeutics Inc. recently received a key U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval for a drug to regulate blood cell development. And Boulder-based InDevR Inc. saw its virus research published in an important industry journal. More than 80 bioscience companies large and small are located in the Boulder Valley, according to the Colorado BioScience Association. Of those, 35 are biotech/pharmaceutical companies, 40 are medical device companies, and at least four are biofuel companies. Bioscience workers make an average salary of $74,000, according to state statistics."
