The NIH RePORTER goes into further detail about the organization receiving NIH funding:
While the biotechnology and medical-device industries are growing as a whole nationwide, Massachusetts added over 8,000 jobs in these sectors in the past five years. Even more interestingly, the life science industry’s employment rate has increased 12% across the country since 2000, but Massachusetts’ grew at a rate exceeding twice that number. The Massachusetts Life Science Center has a great deal to do with life science employment in the Boston area. Lawmakers continue to fund the center generously given its healthy economic impact on the state.
