Ohio's Bioscience Industry Effort Paying Off With Increase in Graduates and Accolades for the State
Date:12/19/2011

touchbionics.com/">Touch Bionics. Both companies have made global headlines with their innovative advances. In November 2011, Nanofiber Solutions played a key role in the world's second successful synthetic trachea transplant. The Columbus firm designed and built the nanofiber tracheal scaffold in which a cancer patient's own stem cells were grown before the transplantation on November 17th in Stockholm. 30-year-old, Christopher Lyles, from Baltimore, Maryland is making a good recovery. "It is an honor to contribute to this life-saving procedure," Nanofiber Solutions CEO Ross Kayuha said. "Successfully implanting a synthetic trachea using a patient's own stem cells is a significant milestone for regenerative medicine."

Despite challenging domestic and international economic climates, Ohio's bioscience industry remained stable, with categorical growth fueled by strategic state investment, favorable industry trends, and a qualified and plentiful workforce.

The bioscience sector is relatively small compared to other sectors in Ohio, but it is continuously growing. Currently more than 1,345 bioscience firms operate at 1,800 locations in Ohio, up from 1,115 firms operating 1,290 locations in 2000. Bioscience companies with operations in Ohio range from innovative start-ups supported by biotech incubators to emerging stars — like Meridian Bioscience, Atricure, Diagnostic Hybrids and Ganeden Biotech — to some of the largest corporations in the world — like Cardinal Health, P&G, Boehringer-Ingelheim and Abbott. Bioscience employment in Ohio has grown 19.5% since 2000, in contrast to a decline of 8.6% in total employment in Ohio. 

Also increasing are the number of specialized graduates. According to BioOhio, in 2010, Ohio institutions awarded 8,088 bioscience related degrees, up 395 from the previous year. Comparing 2010 to 20
