Data: CBRE; Chart: Axios Visuals

Boston, the Washington D.C./Baltimore corridor and the San Francisco Bay Area rank among the top 25 life science clusters in the U.S. as the battle for talent heats up, according to a new report from CBRE.

  • The list also includes non-coastal cities such as Pittsburgh, Dallas and Salt Lake City.
  • "The mass and density of talent leads to these markets' success," the report says about its criteria. They also benefit from "world-leading" universities and industry presence, the report says.

By the numbers: Job growth in life sciences professions including bioengineers, biochemists, microbiologists and data scientists expanded by 79% since 2001 to roughly 500,000, CBRE's report says. The overall U.S. job growth rate during that time was 8%.
