A World-Class Life Science Ecosystem

South Dakota’s bioscience industry offers private and public companies a wealth of support through a robust network of partners and programs that promote research, advocacy and education in biotech. Our bioscience infrastructure includes cGMP-compliant facilities, state-of-the-art research parks and world-class healthcare systems, as well as numerous degree programs offered in the bioscience field from state institutions.

Bioscience companies that call South Dakota home innovate across industries, and it shows. South Dakota scientists have secured hundreds of patents for everything from agbioscience technologies, to renewable energy systems and surgical devices. With easy access to resources, leadership, cross-cluster collaboration and a business-first environment, South Dakota bioscience companies are more empowered to push boundaries and make breakthroughs.
