Our area’s proximity to top-ranked research hospitals and medical centers has made the Iowa City area a natural place for innovation in medical technology. While we’ve seen an increase in medical technology startups in recent years, we have a long-standing history in the field. By the late 1880s, Iowa City was home to the fourth state university-run pharmacy program in the nation and leading research in science and agriculture. Now we are home to multiple biotechnology companies, as well as the University of Iowa, all dedicated to research, development and innovation in agricultural, environmental, health, and industrial biotechnology products and services.
