New York City is doubling its investment in the life science sector. Mayor de Blasio and the New York City Economic Development Corporation launched LifeSci NYC, a program to establish the city as a leading life science market, with an initial investment of $500 million. This week, the city announced that it would increase its investment to $1 billion.

The city will make this investment over the next decade, and the initiative is expected to generate 40,000 jobs. The increased funding will allocate an additional $200 million to construction of commercial lab space and incubators; an additional $300 million to nonprofit research initiatives; an additional $5 million for the Life Sciences Expansion Fund; and an additional $5 million to invest in the LifeSci NYC Internship program.
