The post genome era has opened a vast global job market for biomedical graduates. Opportunities for biomedical scientists will continue to grow over the next decade. The Florida Life Sciences cluster (Miami, Jupiter, Port St. Lucie, Orlando, Tampa, Gainesville, Jacksonville) currently encompasses biotech, pharmaceutical industries, research institutes and diagnostics companies. The graduates of the Biomedical Sciences Program at UNF will help meet the growing demands of industry, health sciences and academia across the state and the rest of the country.
