About VA Beach Bio
VA Beach Bio is a destination for ground-breaking research and development, and headquarters of some of the world’s leading innovators in healthcare, bio-technology, pharmaceutical development and healthcare delivery systems.
The biotechnology field is growing—and in Virginia Beach, the culture is right. As a key research hub centrally located on the East Coast of the United States, we’re thriving—and it’s easy to see why. We are strategically positioned in the “Bio Health Capital Region,” right in between two major bio hubs – the Raleigh Durham Research Triangle & Washington D.C. Virginia Beach is the most populous city in the state of Virginia, and the surrounding Hampton Roads metro area has 1.8 million residents. The region also boasts more than 100,000 college students at schools including William & Mary, Eastern Virginia Medical School, and Old Dominion University. The biomedical industry benefits from the support of a variety of research and academic institutions like NASA Langley Research Center, Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility, and the Hampton University Proton Therapy Institute. The region’s universities and companies excel in research disciplines including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, liver disease and NASH, neuroscience, and oncology.
