Why Innovation Matters
New ideas and technologies help produce high-quality goods and services that keep Pennsylvania competitive in today’s global marketplace. Innovation is spurred by both the private sector and academic institutions. Promising biomedical research conducted at academic institutions is often patented and licensed to private sector entities leading to increased investment, further product development, and economic growth.

Why A Skilled Workforce Matters
A skilled workforce is a critical component for regional economic growth. Many jobs that once required only a high school degree now require additional training or postsecondary education. Ensuring that Pennsylvania’s workforce has access to these opportunities will prepare the region to compete in the global economy. The McGowan Institute employs an interdisciplinary coalition of faculty, students, trainees, and staff who are working to solve critical health issues.

Why Investment Matters
The McGowan Institute receives grants and awards for its research from agencies and organizations like the U.S. Department of Defense, National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and the Department of Veterans Affairs. These research dollars flow through the Pennsylvania economy supporting cutting-edge technologies and therapies in regenerative medicine. The McGowan Institute’s collaborative approach to regenerative medicine research has led to strategic partnerships with various institutions across Pennsylvania. It is through these partnerships, our drive to push medical boundaries, and our expertise across multiple specialties in medical research that the McGowan Institute has continued to be an economic driver in Pennsylvania.
