Benefits by Biotech Sector


 

Health Care

BIO champions biomedical innovation

You are laser focused on very specific business strategies. You need an advocate with knowledge, experience, and access in the areas of policy that matter to you. And when new issues come up that could could limit scientific discovery, impede regulatory approval, and threaten biotech innovation, you need an ally with the policy expertise to develop a strategy to combat them.

There’s no other biotechnology trade association that is as inclusive and collaborative as BIO.

All BIO members have a voice, and our policy work reflects the diversity of our membership. We are run by consensus, working to identify common areas of concern, advance issues, and develop policy proposals important to our members. Our priority issues include those affecting the healthcare-related regulatory and reimbursement climate, pandemic and biodefense preparedness, publicly funded scientific research, and personalized medicine.

You are among the most innovative and dynamic companies in our industry. You’re incredibly busy and wearing multiple hats. You have limited time and money so staying on top of the issues and funding that impact your growth is critical to your success.

Food & Agriculture 


BIO champions food and agricultural biotechnology


You are developing healthier, safer, and higher quality foods to feed a growing population. Your company improves crop insect resistance, enhances crop herbicide tolerance, or facilitates the use of more environmentally sustainable farming practices. Or perhaps you genetically engineer animals to improve their suitability for pharmaceutical, agricultural, or industrial applications. But there are regulatory and policy challenges and activism that threaten these innovations.

No other trade association advocates for biotech in plant and animal agriculture like BIO.

BIO supports an environment that fosters innovation and the freedom to operate for biology-based solutions and systems. 
No matter your size or category, BIO gives you a voice in key policy decisions and a way to stay on top of trends and scientific developments, find partners and gain business intelligence.
