Message from Secretary Hitt: Keeping S.C. on the Cutting Edge

In South Carolina, we make some pretty remarkable things, from aircraft to premium automobiles to high-tech, household appliances. We also make a multitude of life sciences-related products, such as medical devices and pharmaceuticals. In recent years, South Carolina has stepped up its game in that sector, becoming a significant player in the global life sciences industry. Since 2011, life sciences firms have announced the creation of approximately 4,100 new jobs across the state. 

In an effort to discuss the future of this dynamic sector, the S.C. Biotechnology Industry Organization (SCBIO) is hosting its annual conference later this month. Taking place October 23-25, 2018 at Charleston's Gaillard Auditorium, the three-day event provides a great opportunity for industry stakeholders to gather and examine ways to further strengthen life sciences across South Carolina.
