SC Life Sciences Stars in Special Business Magazine Feature

The story on life sciences in South Carolina just took a big step forward to becoming even better known as SCBIZ Magazine featured the booming industry as its Summer 2021 cover story — out now.

The 14-page feature spanned four stories, from the trends driving the rapid growth of life sciences in South Carolina, to major advances in life science research happening here at home. A fabulous story on how SCbio and life sciences organizations are working to close the workforce gap is also included, as well as an industry salute for our role in helping America emerge from COVID.  It’s a tremendous section.

Over 20 organizations are featured in stories, and nearly as many industry leaders from across SC are quoted in articles, enriched with photos, industry data on segments and market penetration, and more.

More than two years in the making by the SCbio team who worked with SCBIZ to bring this first-ever magazine feature on the industry to life, SCBIZ intends to build on this year’s momentum and do another life sciences feature next Summer.  READ THE ENTIRE SECTION HERE!
