Resources for life science businesses & students
Doing Business in Maine + Education & Training

We've recently updated our Doing Business in Maine and Education & Training resource pages! These pages were designed as a tool for students, professionals, entrepreneurs and businesses within Maine's life science industry. Students and professionals are able to browse educational programs, training programs, and opportunities in the state. Our Doing Business in Maine page highlights industry data, funding groups, bioscience focused incubators, and more.

These resource pages are meant to be constantly updated. If you see a resource that's missing or needs editing, please let us know!
