As a historical, cultural, and education epicenter, Philadelphia enjoys a reputation of always being on the cutting edge of professional growth. As the home to legendary research institutions—CHOP, Pennsylvania Hospital, and Jefferson to name a few—it is no surprise that Philadelphia has become a hub of cell and gene therapy labs in the United States. In fact, the Philadelphia sector alone currently represents at least 800 unique companies enlisting roughly 56,000 employees, with life science tenants leasing over three million square feet of property to expand current layouts or begin new builds.
