In Missouri, We Drive Innovation In Healthcare

Across the entire state, local companies with international pedigree are taking advantage of high-quality resources in the Show-Me state to drive industry-wide changes for health innovation, data management and research innovation. Companies like Cerner, Centene, and Express Scripts are all bolstering our state’s reputation as a leader in health services and innovation. Home to some of the most prestigious hospitals and research facilities in the world, companies come here because they know that they’ll have a seat at the table with some of the best in the business.


Several world-renowned research hospitals and innovation communities are performing industry-changing research right here in Missouri. Communities like the Cortex Innovation Community and the Missouri Innovation Center proudly host companies and research centers looking to pave the way in their respective fields, including animal health research, biomedical research, and more. Missouri’s bioscience industry employs approximately 56,000 highly-skilled individuals across more than 4,900 companies. More than 40 Missouri colleges and universities offer bachelor’s degrees or higher in biological or biomedical science, and several quality institutions are proud to call Missouri home. And the new innovative Missouri One Start program can provide your company with the customized training you need to get ahead of the competition.
