Discovery

The Phoenix Bioscience Core is a 30-acre life sciences innovation district in the heart of Downtown Phoenix. Home to the highest concentration of research scientists in the state, the PBC’s anchor institutions include Arizona’s three public research universities — Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University and the University of Arizona — leading genomics pioneers including the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen), part of the City of Hope; the International Genomics Consortium; Exact Sciences; several of Phoenix’s major health care systems, such as Banner Health, Phoenix Children’s Hospital, Dignity Health and Valleywise Health; and a growing number of emerging life science companies.

The Phoenix Bioscience Core is a place where unprecedented collaborations transpire between innovators and institutions of research excellence, setting a new standard in advancing precision medicine from discovery to delivery.
