Fargo Moorhead's Bioscience Industry

The Greater Fargo-Moorhead region’s Bioscience industry may seem like an unlikely success story, far away from the venture capital and concentration of pharmaceutical and biotech powerhouses on the coasts. However, a unique blend of entrepreneurship, technical expertise and plenty of hard work has culminated in business, education and innovation that attracts bioscience and medical device innovators across the nation.
