The largest employment gains came from research and development in biotechnology and analytical laboratory manufacturing, which added 4,248 jobs and 4,128 jobs to the Bay Area during the year, respectively. The region’s highly educated workforce, reinforced by close proximity to research institutions such as UC San Francisco, Stanford, and UC Berkeley, continues to position the region as one of the most elite and active life science clusters in the world.
