About the Park
The Virginia BioTechnology Research Park is a dynamic and growing scientific community in Richmond, located close to the VCU Medical Center and State Capitol of Virginia.
The Virginia BioTechnology Research Park is located in Richmond, Virginia, 100 miles south of Washington, D.C. and in the heart of the nation’s East Coast pharmaceutical and biotechnology corridor. Today, the Park is home to nearly 60 life science companies, research institutes and state/federal labs, employing over 2,400 scientists, engineers, researchers, and related staff.
Members include early and mid-stage companies; multinational pharmaceutical, environmental and consumer product companies; national healthcare organizations managing the nation’s solid organ transplant program, as well as a number of international companies.
The Park has an incubator facility, the Virginia Biotechnology Center, that has facilitated the formation of approximately 70 bioscience companies opening, including three publicly-traded graduates. In addition, the Virginia Biosciences Commercialization Center was formed to assist later-stage companies with products and services that are closer to market, and to serve as a “soft landing” center to foreign bioscience companies looking to enter U.S. markets.
The Research Park is located in the heart of historic Richmond, Virginia, amidst vibrant neighborhoods that offer historic residences, urban lofts and apartments, restaurants, coffee shops, museums and performing arts centers. Additionally, both the mountains and the beaches are only a short 90-minute drive from the Park.
