" California has the largest bioscience industry employment base among states with more than 235,000 jobs or 15 percent of the national sector. The state has a specialized concentration in the biosciences with a 28 percent greater concentration of industry jobs relative to the national average. This includes a specialization in three of the five major subsectors including: medical devices and equipment; research, testing, and medical labs; and drugs and pharmaceuticals. These three specialized subsectors have all added jobs over the 2007 to 2012 period and contributed to 5 percent employment growth in the state bioscience sector. California is a national leader in several other performance metrics including bioscience venture capital investments at over $19 billion since 2009; NIH funding awarded to state institutions at $3.3 billion; and academic bioscience R&D expenditures at $5.1 billion. California's large bioscience research infrastructure has yielded nearly 30,000 patents since 2009."
