Virginia Bio Unveils Statewide Map of Bioscience
Thursday, May 21, 2015
On April 23 at the statewide THRiVE 2015 Conference, Virginia Bio unveiled the first generation of an exciting new resource, a statewide map of bioscience in Virginia. The VA Life Science Map is publicly available at all times and can be found on the Virginia Bio website. The map is intended to showcase the variety of companies and research institutions here in the Commonwealth, and be an catalyst for outside interest and economic growth.
There are multiple ways to search the map, by overall category, using the filtering tool to narrow by functional areas or through a simple keyword search.
“As with any data driven resource the map is only as good as the information we have,” said Sherri Halloran, Virginia Bio Vice President of Membership and Programs. “We’re asking everyone to explore the map and report any inaccurate or missing information to our office so that we can continually update the map, making it a useful, comprehensive tool.”
Changes can be sent to the Virginia Bio office via email or by phone to (804) 643-6360.
