Impacting Arizona

Impacting Arizona

BIO5’s mission runs deeper than groundbreaking research. We are committed to improving the health and well-being of Arizona’s people, land, workforce and economy. 

With a culture of teamwork and collaboration, BIO5 cultivates and powers connections among the brightest minds in our state’s science, industry, government, nonprofit and business sectors. Our entrepreneurial spirit has fostered more than 70 spinout companies in the last decade, accelerating the commercialization of new technologies, diagnostics and treatments. Our unique partnerships with groups across campus and around the state are designed to advance science, science translation, science education and science literacy. And because outreach is part of BIO5’s DNA, we develop innovative programs to inspire Arizona’s future generations.
