Abstract

Washington D.C. and Kansas City are an unlikely pair of United States cities when it comes to comparing their respective economies. However, the two regions exhibit striking similarities in the ways in which their biotechnology industry clusters have evolved. While Washington D.C.'s biotech economy is very mature, Kansas City's biotech cluster is emerging. Despite these differences, both regions have managed to root biotech firms and life science research institutions, attract a skilled labor pool, and host specialized support institutions. - (IfL)
