BioDistrict New Orleans

BioDistrict New Orleans is a state-enabled economic development or geopolitical district charged with the responsibility of growing both the programmatic and physical development components of this geographic area. The 1,500-acre district spans downtown and throughout Mid-City. The BioDistrict is focused on the development of a biosciences industry that will foster world-class biosciences research and development; local, regional, and global healthcare delivery; and stable, high-paying jobs for professionals, managers and workers representing a wide range of skills.

BioDistrict New Orleans’ Future

NOLABA’s Board of Directors signed a Cooperative Endeavor Agreement (CEA) with the BioDistrict Board of Commissioners that provides for NOLABA to take on daily administrative tasks in direct support of the BioDistrict. NOLABA staff is currently developing a new strategy to grow the BioInnovation cluster in New Orleans and will work closely with the BioDistrict Board of Commissioners throughout the process.
