The Los Angeles region generates a high volume of cutting edge life science research capable of supporting new commercial enterprises. The bioscience industry generates well-paying jobs at all skill levels. Unfortunately, many new start-ups move to other regions that provide a business infrastructure with
resources that support success and growth. The County of Los Angeles is committed to reversing this trend to ensure that new technology generated in the region remains and that local residents benefit from the jobs created from the commercialization of new technologies. Ensuring that the local workforce has the
necessary skills and training that these companies need to be successful and continue to grow over the long term is critical.
