The Lin-gang Special Area – located in the city of Shanghai in East China – held a sub-forum of 2021 Shanghai International Biopharma Industry Week on Oct 13, during which it explored its growing role as a biomedical hub.

Twenty-four biomedical key projects with an investment of 14.7 billion yuan ($2.28 billion) were signed at the forum.

The projects cover fields such as precision diagnosis, immunotherapy, gene therapy, high-end medical devices, vaccines, and small molecule drug research and development.

This signing ceremony was notably the second of its kind this year for the sector in the area.

The Lin-gang Special Area is understood to be actively constructing an international biomedical industry cluster that integrates research and development, production, testing, exhibition and other functions.

In particular, the Lingang Life Science & Tech Park is regarded as an important part of Shanghai's "1+5+X" biomedical industry layout.
