We at Biotechnology Calendar believe that the U of U has a lot to offer for vendors wanting to sell research supplies. Here are some reasons for lab suppliers to explore the Utah bioresearch marketplace: 
  1. Excellent public academic research institution and medical school
  2. Strong federal, state, and philanthropic funding
  3. Pro-business, pro-industry environment good for start-ups
  4. Heavy state investment in promoting university biotech invention
  5. Top-ranking technology transfer record
  6. Forward-thinking business school to make local tech commercialization work
  7. Up-and-coming urbanism to attract and retain researchers and management
