It takes good DNA to establish a healthy bioscience industry and Washtenaw County's gene pool is deep and wide. Along with the academic and research power of the University Of Michigan, there's also the relentless advocacy of SPARK and Michbio, Michigan's life sciences trade association.

You can play connect-the-dots with the successful life science startups that have popped up around Ann Arbor: Nanobio, Cerenis Therapeutics, QuatRx, Compendia Bioscience, Oxford Biomedical, Velesco, the list goes on and on and on. Washtenaw County's biosciences are truly the shape of things to come --for Michigan and the world!
