A di­ver­si­fied econ­omy is key to any real es­tate mar­ket, and Jupiter is adding to its econ­omy via its grow­ing biotech­nol­ogy sec­tor.

Biotech­nol­ogy harnesses cel­lu­lar and biomolec­u­lar pro­cesses to de­velop tech­nolo­gies that help im­prove lives and the health of our planet. Some es­ti­mates say the biotech­nol­ogy sec­tor could add over 100,000 new jobs through­out the na­tion in the com­ing years.

Scripps Re­search In­sti­tute, which is one of the most pres­ti­gious bio­med­i­cal sci­ence or­ga­ni­za­tions in the coun­try and is head­quar­tered in La Jolla, Calif., has a 30-acre cam­pus in Jupiter, Fla. Scripps opened the Jupiter cam­pus with the aim to cre­ate new prod­ucts and meth­ods to fight dis­ease.

Scripps Florida has more than 600 em­ploy­ees at its Jupiter cam­pus. Scripps is com­mit­ted to its Florida cam­pus, re­cruit­ing new sci­en­tists to join­ing the fac­ulty. Re­cently, the Busi­ness De­vel­op­ment Board of Palm Beach County re­ported that biotech jobs in the county to­taled about 3,000.
