golden-palm-1399000Los Angeles is home to some of the world’s foremost medical researchers, and is a leading hub for biotechnology and biomedical research. Life science professionals from all over the world come to Los Angeles - especially the University of California, Los Angeles - to collaborate, exchange ideas, and investigate new technologies. 

So, what makes UCLA such an excellent venue for life science research?

  1. UCLA receives over $1 billion in research funding on a yearly basis.
  2. UCLA has over 290 medical research centers and distinctive institutes, and employs some of the leading life science researchers in the world.
  3. UCLA receives regular support from the National Institutes of Health, including $364 million in FY 2014.
  4. UCLA benefits from a unique wealth of funding both public and private, which results in hundreds of patents annually, and some of the best medical and life science research in the world.

Most recent funding stats include:

  • UCLA has $370 million in funding awarded YTD for FY 2015-2016
  • $1.03 billion awarded for FY 2014-2015
  • $972.5 million awarded for FY 2013-2014

  • 5086 IRB approvals completed for FY 2013-2014
  • 164 ARC approvals completed for FY 2015-2016

With and established history of huge research budgets and annual r&d expenditures, it’s no surprise that vendors consider the life science marketplace at the University of California, Los Angeles as a unique opportunity in the industry.

That’s why Biotechnology Calendar, Inc. will be hosting the Semiannual Biotechnology Vendor Showcase™ event on campus at UCLA on April 28th, 2016 and again on October 20th, 2016.
