Technology. Talent. Research.
Life Sciences South Florida (LSSF) is a consortium of institutions, including universities, colleges, economic development agencies, research institutes and industry for whom the life sciences are a key part of their focus.
The goal of stimulating South Florida’s economic growth in the life sciences occurs by linking the elements of the innovation ecosystem: research, entrepreneurship, venture capital and life sciences companies. LSSF strives to increase research density and accelerate research commercialization. Additionally, the life sciences workforce required to support economic innovation is strengthened by enhancing K-20 STEM education and talent development in the region. LSSF works to provide programming and connectivity to foster all of these elements.
LSSF also facilitates the sharing of high-tech equipment and guides the development of a skilled biotechnology workforce capable of supporting cutting-edge research and commercial innovation, paving the way for a resilient economy by generating stable and sustainable employment.
