3 Questions for 4 Players in Maryland’s Biotech Industry

MACo’s Tech Expo gathers leaders in the biotech industry to share their insight into how Maryland – already a biotech powerhouse – can build on its success and continue to grow the industry statewide.

  1. What are the top three gotta-haves in making Maryland a bigger player in biotech industry?
  2. What obstacles stand in the way of growing the biotech industry in Maryland? (Laws? Regulations? Economics? Employment?)
