Life Sciences Pennsylvania (LSPA) is the statewide trade association for the commonwealth’s life sciences industry. Founded in 1989, LSPA works to ensure Pennsylvania has a business and public policy climate that makes the commonwealth the most attractive location to open and operate a life sciences company.
LSPA represents biotechnology, medical device, diagnostic, pharmaceutical, research, and investment entities, along with myriad service providers who support the industry. Together, we unify Pennsylvania’s innovators to make the Commonwealth a global life sciences leader.
Life Sciences Pennsylvania focuses on just that – the vast network of life sciences institutions and related industries that call Pennsylvania home. The makeup of LSPA is as diverse as the life changing technologies being developed in the innovative labs and development facilities across the state – but includes academic research institutions, biotechnology, pharmaceutical, medical device and diagnostic, digital health, patient advocacy groups and so much more.
