Welcome to the Colorado BioScience Association’s 15th issue of Bioscience Colorado. This annual publication is a celebration of Colorado’s rapidly expanding bioscience industry.

Our magazine puts our colorful story into print to share with everyone. It has become a key resource for companies, investors, legislators, economic developers, and anyone else with an interest in our thriving industry. With a total audience of more than 9,000, including online impressions, this publication is one of the sector’s greatest voices – locally, nationally and internationally.

2017 was a record breaking year for bioscience in the state, with $1.2 billion raised in funding for our companies. It takes an enormous amount of talent, experience, skill, and hard work from the entire community to achieve that sort of recognition. It also takes the intrepid spirit that runs throughout Colorado. This year’s issue recognizes that bold approach to bioscience.

Within these pages you’ll find great insight on why Colorado is a recognized leader in bioscience. Our pioneers are staying a step ahead of others in orthopedics, employing remarkable new ideas and technologies. We’re also aware of the benefits our diversity brings to the work. A variety of backgrounds generates fresh perspectives and increased opportunities in previously unexplored avenues to success.

Colorado is the home to many brilliant and brave entrepreneurs. We highlight just a few of ourrecognized names in the state. We also look at the spaces, programs, and collaborations that are giving great ideas the boost they need to become a market reality.

Each year we crunch the numbers and look at the metrics of our local industry. You’ll find easy to read graphs that tell the story of last year’s work in the field. You’ll also be able to review the financial numbers to find how we reached the highest level of funding ever recorded in our state.

In addition to capital investment, NIH has steadily increased their grant awards to our Colorado pioneers, rising to $359 million in FY 2017. You’ll find the statistics for NIH and other grant awards that supported breakthroughs inside this issue.

We hope you’ll enjoy our online magazine. Please continue to support our bold life science organizations and service providers to help us make this year our best yet!
