The people in governmental positions along the 78 corridor are the opposite of the steroid type that government is an impediment to business. Actually with 78 Corridor it is the opposite. When we brought up an issue to Mayor Judy Ritter, City of Vista about the low volume of CLIA certified lab students coming out of the local collages we received an immediate response that lead to action items to correct the issue. They gathered all relevant constituents on the topic including the Dean of the College of Science and Mathematics, CSUSM, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, CSUSM and we were able put plans in place to correct the issue. The rest of the mayors in the nation have a lot to learn from the 78 Corridor. 


Much like New Jersey is seen as the hub for all major pharmaceutical companies and Boston is seen as a Biotech hub, San Diego/78 Corridor is seen as a true hub for Diagnostic organizations.  This allows for an easy flow of ideas and resources.  


We see Exagen expanding to 500 employees and revenue of over $100 mm in the next 5 years.  We plan on staying located where we have governmental support and access to quality science through major Universities.
