Chandler :: Bio & Life Sciences
Chandler’s roots in biosciences began with Dr. AJ Chandler in 1912, an early innovator in agricultural biotechnology
Chandler is investing significant resources to ensure superior infrastructure and a great location for companies to do business. Located on the premiere 101 Science and Technology Corridor, Chandler provides easy access to major universities, the Bio Design Institute, ASU Research Park, research hospitals and Chandler’s internationally recognized biotechnology companies that have already discovered all that Chandler has to offer.
This is one reason why Covance, one of the world’s largest and most comprehensive drug development services companies, providing preclinical and clinical development for pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, recently expanded their operations into Chandler. Other biotechnology companies in Chandler include Heraeus, Magnum Medical, Sensys Medical, Radiant Research, Analyze Inc, Arizona Nutritional Supplements, Island Kinetics and many others.
Biotechnology education and training programs are available at all three state universities as well as Chandler-Gilbert Community College, part of the Maricopa Community Colleges system. Many metro-area high schools also offer biosciences curriculum for students who have shown potential for excellence.
