BioTech Park

Adjacent to the VCU Medical Center stands the Virginia BioTechnology Research Park, a biosciences community that works with VCU to promote technology transfer and business development. It hosts more than 50 bioscience companies, research institutes affiliated with the VCU Medical Center and major state and national medical laboratories and organizations involved with forensics, testing of biotoxins and the nation’s organ transplantation process. The park’s bioincubator program, which assists young companies with jumpstarting their business, has offered help to 50 companies since its inception, 18 of which were start-ups from VCU.
