American University’s Business In the Capital Initiative (BCI), in cooperation with BioHealth Innovation, Johns Hopkins University, MedImmune and area governments and universities, is conducting a study of BioHealth Exports in the Washington Region. As part of the study, BCI is seeking input from area life science companies which are either currently exporting products or services-- or are not exporting but would like to do so in the near future. The study goals are to increase exports of life science products and services into the global health care markets, and to identify and remedy the barriers to entry to the global healthcare markets for BioHealth Capital Region companies.

To make this exercise a success, we are seeking life science companies in Maryland, Virginia and D.C. to participate in a survey. Participating companies will be interviewed either in person or via voice. Confidentiality of companies and the information they choose to provide is assured. To participate, contact Prof. Erran Carmel at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 202-885-1928.
