WASHINGTON, D.C. — On Monday, the Biden-Harris Administration announced that Pennsylvania — along with 31 other sites nationally — will become a national Innovation and Technology Hub through the Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration. The Greater Philadelphia Region Precision Medicine Tech Hub, led by the Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Southeastern PA, will make a major investment in new biotechnology and other medical technologies to deliver new ways to diagnose, prevent, and treat disease.
