Just 40 miles north of Washington, D.C., the Baltimore metropolitan region combines the appeal of a major urban center—outstanding cultural and entertainment options; diverse neighborhoods ranging from historic to sophisticated waterfront condos to classic suburbia; a large selection of public, private, and parochial schools; and world class healthcare—with many of the benefits of smaller locales including an affordable cost of living, reasonable commutes and a sense of community.
The city’s largest employers, Johns Hopkins and the University of Maryland, Baltimore together with their respective medical centers, anchor the central business district’s east and west sides. Regional business groups such as the Greater Baltimore Committee, the Greater Baltimore Technology Council, and a full complement of area service providers from law firms to commercial bankers and venture capitalists provide a supportive environment for bioscience companies.
In Baltimore, you will find all the essential ingredients for working and living—a talented workforce and an attractive lifestyle at an affordable cost.
