LifeSci NYC is an over $1 billion initiative to create 40,000 new jobs and establish New York City as the global leader in life sciences.

Led by New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC), the City’s investment in life sciences will create, produce, and deliver dozens of new cures and treatments, generating thousands of new jobs for New Yorkers—making our city healthier and fairer.

The initiative includes three key areas: Talent, Research, and Space.
