What are some good biotech/biomedical companies in the Long Beach/Orange County area?

I am looking to enter this field upon my college graduation in 5 years and want to start looking into some great companies! Help is much appreciated! #biology #biotechnology #biotech #industrial-biotechnology #biomed #biomedical-engineering #biomedical #science

Hi Cristia, I am happy to hear you are interested in biotechnology! California is a great place for biotechnology. There are an abundance of companies in the Bay Area, and a pocket in San Diego as well. I am not too familiar with the Long Beach area, but I do know Kite Pharma is in Santa Monica, and Amgen is in Thousand Oaks. If you are interested in Northern California, big names like Gilead, Genentech, Bayer, and Verily are there. A good website to learn more about Biotechnology and careers is, Check it out! Hope this helps! Best regards, Herman Herman Liu

Some companies (but there are tons!):
Allergan (now part of Abbvie)
Edwards Lifesciences
B Braun Medical

Hi Cristia,
That's awesome that you are interested in biotechnology. I would say since you are just starting your college career to approach your professors that work in the bioengineering/biotechnology field and express your interest. They will give you some companies to follow up on, they might even give you some contacts to speak with and it gives you an opportunity to get to know your professors.
