is.href );" target="_blank" title="biotechnology">biotechnology industry funding every quarter. In the fourth quarter of 2009, with $714 million in funding, the biotech human subsegment alone received almost as much funding as the whole medical device industry. Out of 108 biotechnology deals for the fourth quarter of 2009, 64 of those belonged to biotech human. Looking at 2009 as a whole, 244 of the 406 biotechnology deals belonged to the biotech human subsegment. Investment in the biotech equipment subsegment demonstrated strong growth for the year, increasing by 67 percent to $207 million.

In the medical device industry, the medical therapeutics subsegment historically attracts the most funding every quarter. However, it began to show a decline after the second quarter in 2009, dropping from $455 million in that quarter to $439 million in the fourth quarter. Within the medical therapeutics subsegment, the surgical lasers subsegment jumped by 58 percent to $78 million. Surgical instrumentation and equipment also gained a small percentage, capturing $865 million for the year.

In the fourth quarter of 2009, the medical and health products and medical diagnostics subsegments grew by 118 percent and 35 percent, respectively — resulting in a growth of 14 percent for medical devices as a whole over the last quarter of 2008.

Investments by Region
The top five metropolitan regions receiving Life Sciences venture capital funding during 2009 were San Jose ($1,244 million), Boston ($990 million), San Diego Metro ($606 million), San Francisco/Berkeley ($477 million), and New York Metro ($427 million).

Funding in the San Jose area declined more steeply than the national level in 2009, while funding in the Boston metro area outperformed the national average. Both biotechnology and medical devices demonstrated stronger performance in the Boston area.
