Quoting from the recent bylined article by CBSA President & CEO Holli Riebel:
"Colorado is the next frontier in life sciences. Every day, more than 600 Colorado bioscience companies help improve lives locally and around the world. The state has seen its bioscience industry continue to grow faster than the national average over the past five years with more than 20,000 employees, and in fact grew 1.8 percent last year when the rest of the country saw a 2.4 percent decline. Colorado ranks sixth in medical device employment and houses medical device and biotechnology companies such as Caridian BCT, Covidien, Baxa, Amgen, Merck, and Roche."
