BioSpace Launches 2022 Hotbed Maps to Highlight Thriving Life Sciences Clusters

DES MOINES, Iowa--()--BioSpace, Inc., the leading life sciences news and careers site, has unveiled their 2022 Hotbed Maps, celebrating thriving life sciences organizations across the United States.

BioSpace Hotbed Maps feature nine of the most important regions in the life sciences industry. Original watercolor maps provide an at-a-glance reference to the industry’s leading innovators, employers and investors and have been a favorite of the life sciences community since they were first launched in 1989.

“Our iconic regional hotbed maps showcase elite companies across the United States,” said Josh Goodwin, CEO of BioSpace. “These multi-channel campaigns are an effective method for companies to elevate their brand to prospective employees, investors, customers and colleagues.”

The Hotbeds have evolved over the years, and now include digital versions that integrate Hotbed company information and jobs. Given the highly competitive life sciences talent market, employers have appreciated the significant boost in exposure the Hotbeds provide their organization's recruitment efforts.

Appearing on the BioSpace Hotbed Maps “increases visibility to our ads and page on the BioSpace website... increasing our brand awareness,” said Shaun Vigeant, Senior Director, Talent Acquisition at Intellia Therapeutics.

As the life sciences industry has grown and diversified across the U.S., new Hotbeds have emerged in recent years, including Lone Star Bio (Texas), BioForest (Washington, Oregon) and BioNC (Research Triangle Park, North Carolina). Additionally, BioSpace features the most promising start-ups in its NextGen Bio map.
