LIFE SCIENCES – CURRENT STATE IN LASuggested Focus Area Based on Industry Feedback • Promote Statewide Commercialization Mechanisms and Advance Enabling Technology (i.e. Healthcare Innovation, Preclinical Testing, Drug Discovery) Resources in the Life Sciences to Help Drive Industry-University CollaborationRationale • The presence and focus of university research is a key driver of life sciences innovation. • In Louisiana, universities conduct $430 million in life sciences research, representing 65% of total university R&D activity ($357M and 54% without Agricultural Sciences). • Significant R&D infrastructure including two national primate centers, multiple university healthcare innovation efforts and a new clinical research consortium are fostering collaborative life science research between university and industry.LA Talent Assets • Louisiana ranked 18th in generation of life sciences masters and doctorates in 2010, with 388 degrees awarded -- this degree total represents 1.8% of life sciences masters and doctorate degrees awarded nationally in 2010. • Louisiana had 20.5% growth in life sciences masters and doctorate degrees from 2007 to 2010 compared to 22.8% growth in the nation.Key Industry Base in LA • Healthcare • PharmaceuticalsState Programs & Incentives • LA has established research & development tax credit for businesses with an operating facility in the state to start or continue research and development activities in the state.Key Issue(s) • Louisiana’s university research is not widely connected industry to foster the translation of the early-stage innovations into commercialized products.Confidential Working Draft – Not for distribution (3/11/13).

  41. 41. KEY WAY TO VIEW UNIVERSITY ASSETS IS THROUGH FOCUS OF TRANSLATIONAL RESEARCH Life sciences development has a unique translational research requirement that calls for especially close connections between biomedical research discoveries, product advancement and clinical care  Not simply one of advancing a supplier and buyer relationship, instead there is a close and needed interface of ―bench and bedside‖ for biomedical innovation to move forward. Applied R&D Pre-Clinical Clinical (drug discovery, Development Development Basic Sciences proof of (Absorption, • (Early stage Clinical (largely NIH funded) concept, Distribution, clinical trials to Excellence large scale clinical prototype Metabolism & trials) design) Excretion) Within the life sciences business sector, there is a growing focus on strategic collaborations across the translational research paradigm.  Result of the continuing need to rationalize R&D expenditures due to impending patent expirations as well as the decline in productivity in the development and commercialization of new medical products.Confidential Working Draft – Not for distribution (3/11/13).
