New Haven and Farmington may be the first locations we associate with Connecticut’s biotech industry, but don’t forget Branford, the shoreline town that has quietly added dozens of startup bioscience firms over the last 30 years.
“Historically, Branford has been — in addition to New Haven — a place where bioscience has gotten a foothold.”
Susan Froshauer, president and CEO of Connecticut bioscience advocate CURE.
Some firms have stayed, some have been acquired, but tangible benefits and a vibrant networking community continue to draw bioscience companies, researchers and industry executives to the small town with a high quality of life:
Branford town government and industry officials also aim to help Connecticut to become a national bioscience hub, and plan to explore collaboration with Farmington’s Jackson Laboratory, a company that seeks to spur statewide industry growth and extend its role beyond the Hartford area.
Thriving or acquired bioscience businesses in Branford include:
