Utah’s life sciences industry is doing its part in the battle against COVID-19 by developing diagnostic and antibody tests, manufacturing testing supplies, procuring critical PPE, researching treatments, utilizing next generation sequencing and innovating technologies and methods that could ultimately provide new tools to combat the virus.

To better showcase these efforts, BioUtah has produced a report titled “Utah Life Sciences Companies: Response to COVID-19.” The report details the activities of 40 life sciences companies in the state that are responding to the coronavirus. A link to the report can be found at BioUtah’s website: bioutah.org.

“It is our hope that the information will help policymakers, stakeholders and the public understand the extent to which Utah’s life sciences industry is part of the solution to this pandemic,” said Kelvyn Cullimore, president and CEO of BioUtah. The list of companies was compiled from survey results and outreach. It is not intended to be exhaustive.

Any companies engaged in responding to COVID-19, but not listed, may contact Cullimore at kelvyn@bioutah.org or 801-580-4523.
