The East Coast is a key hub for the biotech industry and some major pharmaceutical and life sciences organizations and institutions are located in this part of the US. For a biotech recruiter that makes this a particularly important location, especially as hiring in this location is forecast to remain strong throughout 2022. Massachusetts is a prime example of the strength of East Coast biotech, as it's a state with robust collaboration between government, industry and academia, as well as large waves of talent entering the sector here, including a 50% increase in graduates from biotech programs in the past 10 years. New York is also a key contributor to the strength of East Coast biotech recruitment, thanks to 50+ hospitals, 9 academic medical centers and a $1 billion initiative to create 40,000 new jobs and establish the city as a global leader in the industry. Then there is New Jersey, which is home to 14 of the top 20 pharmaceutical companies in the country and 3,200 life sciences companies.
