New interactive map shows bioscience companies in Oregon

Anyone who would like to see how many bioscience companies are in Oregon can search a new interactive map.

The Oregon Translational Research and Development Institute today announced the launch of the Oregon Bioscience Ecosystem and Map.

It includes a comprehensive database and searchable map on OTRADI’s website. You can search bioscience companies by area of focus, such as therapeutic, medical device diagnostic and digital health, or by company size and location.

The map contains about 200 unique entries. Those not represented on the map can add themselves.

“Oregon’s growing bioscience industry is driving innovations that will save lives and improve health care, while at the same time, creating valuable jobs across the state,” Jennifer Fox, OTRADI’s executive director said in a statement.

“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.”

Gov. Kate Brown last week announced$400,000 in grant support for Oregon companies participating in federal grant programs, which is potentially good news for bioscience startups.

And a recently formed group, the Central Eastside Development Task Force, is hoping to jumpstart a bioscience hub in Portland’s inner southeast quadrant.
