Bioscience and Biotechnology in the Columbus Region


The Columbus Region is home to a robust science and technology industry, fueled by a top-ranked workforce and competitive cost of doing business.

Innovative Resources, Resourceful Innovators


Institutions and resources in the Columbus Region are making major breakthroughs led by world class talent pool.

Among the Region’s top resources are Nationwide Children’s Hospital, an international leader in pediatric research; The Ohio State University, ranked as the No. 10 university for total research expenditures and No. 2 for industry-sponsored research; and Rev1 Ventures, a VC and accelerator offering expert advice, access to capital and business-growth connections to local tech entrepreneurs.

The Ohio State University

These resources as well as the bioscience and biotechnology companies in the Region are staffed by a science and technology talent base of more than 60,000 workers. Nearly 60 college and university campuses enroll 136,000 students to continually fill the talent pipeline.

Already home to more than 150 faculty working in data analytics, The Ohio State University has created a state-of-the-art data analytics program and undergraduate major. Majors specialize in biomedical informatics, business analytics or computational analytics in addition to core coursework.
