Majority of FierceBiotech’s “Fierce15” for 2014 Based in Big3Bio Regions

BOSTON and SAN FRANCISCO – (September 22, 2014) – FierceBiotech announced its annual “Fierce 15” companies for 2014, and of the 15, 11 of them are based in the “Big 3” biocluster regions.

The 11:

Aduro BioTech – Berkeley (Bay Area) – press release
Calico – SF (Bay Area)
Cidara Therapeutics – San Diego – press release
Cleave Biosciences – Burlingame (Bay Area)
Dimension Therapeutics – Cambridge (Boston) – press release

John Carroll, editor at FierceBiotech noted: “The science behind drug development is perhaps more clearly defined in this year’s class than ever before. Every entrepreneur now understands just how important it is to have the right lab behind the company. That kind of scientific credibility is at the heart of many success stories. And as more scientists get bitten by the biotech bug, I’d be willing to wager that you’ll see many of them come back to launch more new companies in years to come. ”

We hope so too and congratulate all the winners! Big3Bio will also cover the live presentation of the winners – look to Big3Bio and Big3Bio:Boston Twitter pages for information and updates.
