The St. Louis region is currently home to more than 700 bioscience companies employing about 16,500 scientists and staff and the world’s largest concentration of plant science Ph.D.s. This growth has not been by accident, but rather through the purposeful and strategic efforts of leaders over the past 20 years. Click here for a quick snapshot of the economic impact of this industry and some of the key contributors.
