About San Diego CA


A major city along the Pacific coastline of Southern California, San Diego is home to an estimated population of nearly 1.4 million individuals, making it the eighth-largest city in the United States, and the second-largest in California. It is a natural harbor, which has made it a historically economic center within the region. Admitted into the United States in 1850, following the Mexican-American War, San Diego was established as a convenient shipping port, which allowed it to flourish over the decades. Although it is often considered a tourist city, the nearby University of California, San Diego and its affiliated UCSD Medical Center has allowed the city to earn its reputation as an epicenter of biotechnological research. Over the past few decades, San Diego has emerged as a healthcare and biotechnology development center, with a number of businesses providing jobs in these fields. In fact, the city has the second-largest biotech cluster in the United States, below the Boston area, and above the San Francisco Bay Area with more than 400 biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies in the region.
