Boston, world biotech capital
R&D researchers, start-ups, big pharma companies, and virtually the entire international pharmaceutical industry has been based for several years in Boston. The interest generated by Boston began at the end of the 1970s when academic centres and laboratories began to create close links. Today, the biopharmaceutical sector has more than 60,000 employees, and more than 1,600 molecules are being developed in the state of Massachusetts.
