    Investment in U.S. life sciences real estate increased by 62 percent last year, with further growth of at least 10 percent expected in 2022, according to a CBRE research report.

    Investment in life sciences real estate, comprised of lab and Research and Development (R&D) properties, reached $21.4 billion in 2021, a 62 percent increase over 2020. Investment in the sector has grown by 111 percent since 2018.
