South Carolina ‘s Life Sciences Community

South Carolina is bringing new life science technologies including therapeutics, medical devices, diagnostics and bio-materials from the lab to marketplace. Enabling legislation, collaborative programs such as Health Sciences South Carolina, SC Launch, and SC BIO along with state-wide support organizations such as the Palmetto Biotechnology Alliance, research centers and new wet lab space all contribute to the growth of South Carolina’s biotech industry.

With a growing knowledge-based economy, three major research universities (Clemson, the Medical University of South Carolina and the University of South Carolina) and national award winning support organizations for entrepreneurs and their growing companies, South Carolina provides a comprehensive ecosystem for biotech to thrive.
