Wisconsin poised to become national biomanufacturing hub


With diagnostics, digital health, bioscience and medtech, Wisconsin’s biohealth industry is broad-reaching.

“Wisconsin has strengths in many areas,” said Lisa Johnson, CEO of BioForward.

Now, as medical innovation drives the industry, Wisconsin is poised to become a world-class center of biomanufacturing. With 75 established biomanufacturing companies and 50 startups – representing $115 billion in annual revenue – Wisconsin is quickly emerging as a powerful national biomanufacturing hub.

“Biomanufacturing is a major focus,” said Johnson. “We have all the necessary components.” Building on those existing assets and resources, Johnson sees 2018 as a pivotal year for Wisconsin’s biomanufacturing center of excellence.
