About Us

Orange County and Los Angeles attracted over $1 billion annually in private investments and government funding in 2004. While San Diego companies tend to specialize in pharmaceuticals and medical research, Orange County and Los Angeles companies are primarily involved in biotech instruments and medical devices. There are approximately 9000 professionals working in the life science-related fields in Orange County and Los Angeles. In view of the different culture, business focus, and regional needs, SABPA expanded to Orange County and Los Angeles in June 2005. The new OC/LA chapter aims to address the needs of local professionals, collaborate with the San Diego chapter and Pacific Asian business community to promote life sciences business locally, and facilitate networking among investors, professionals, researchers, and students.
