BioSciences

Greater New Orleans has been a strong health services provider and active hub of research and biosciences activity, and the sector remains one of the region’s largest employers.

Regional organizations are working to continue fostering entrepreneurship and innovation, while creating a thriving regional biosciences and healthcare industry. At the center of this growing industry is a 2.4 square mile area in the heart of New Orleans’
Downtown Medical District, where leading medical schools, universities, hospitals, and research institutions work to advance bioscience knowledge.

Some key developments include approved LSU and VA hospitals, which will create 6,000 jobs and $1.26 billion in annual impact; a $90 million Tulane-LSU Cancer Research Center under development; and the New Orleans BioInnovation Center, a 66,000 square
feet state-of-the-art wet lab incubator opened in 2011.

Home to multiple colleges and universities with strong biotech-related degree and research programs in areas such as cancer research, gene therapy, neurosciences, biostatistics, and tropical medicine, Greater New Orleans is a favorable research
environment for scientists.

Two of the three primate research centers in the country are in Louisiana, and Tulane University is expanding its Primate Research Center in St. Tammany Parish. Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, located in New Orleans, is the only school of Tropical Medicine in the country. The development of the UNO Research center in St. Tammany Parish will expand the region’s cutting-edge research capabilities.

An infusion of investment will enhance the region’s research base. Hospitals across the region are continuing to expand, including: LSU Health Science Center and Tulane University Medical Center in New Orleans; the creation of the St. Bernard Parish
Hospital Services District; and the expansion of the Oschner hospital system, including new obstetrics departments, 2 new clinics in New Orleans and Kenner in Jefferson Parish, and expansion onto the Northshore.
