The new Washington Life Science History poster is now available! We want to a extend a
special thank you to Knobbe Martens, Christensen O'Connor Johnson Kindness, Immune Design,
Oncothyreon, and Washington State University for sponsoring this unique one-time
Washington Life Science History poster. (Photo: University of Washington, circa 1870).
Historically, it is the cutting edge research conducted at the University of Washington
(UW) and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (FHRCR) that has been the technology
foundation of more than 140 companies created since 1980.
The state's two largest universities, the University of Washington and Washington State
University (WSU), have together been awarded more than $27.7 billion in total grant
and contract awards since 1980, $1.5 billion in 2015 alone. Since 1980, the Fred Hutch
has received more than $6.7 billion in total grants and contracts, with 2015 awards
exceeding $325.1 million.
From 1980-2016, more than 100 of the state's life science companies have either merged
with, or were acquired by another company. Some of the most prominent: Dendreon was acquired by Valeant; Genetic Systems was
first acquired by Bristol-Myers, then divested to Sanofi; Hollister-Stier, the oldest
name in allergy science, is now Jubilant HollisterStier; ICOS was purchased by Eli Lilly;
Immunex was acquired by Amgen; Physio-Control was recently acquired by Stryker, and
ZymoGenetics is part of the Bristol-Myers Squibb family, just to name a few.
The new Washington Life Science History poster incorporate all of these events and many
more into a one-of-a-kind must have addition for your office wall.
