BIO Submits Comments to the Office of Science Technology and Policy (OSTP) on the Bioeconomy

October 22, 2019

The Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO) has submitted comments to the Office of Science Technology and Policy (OSTP) on the bioeconomy, explaining the critical role America’s biotechnology industry plays in feeding, fueling, and healing the world. The comments were recently highlighted by Tom DiLenge, president of BIO’s Advocacy, Law & Public Policy Division, during The White House Summit on America’s Bioeconomy, which included leaders from industry, academia, and the government.

“It’s a remarkable time for the biotechnology industry in America. Our world-class scientists, brilliant researchers, and savvy entrepreneurs are making an enormous difference in improving the health of our loved ones and our planet,” DiLenge noted. “Yet while our progress has been amazing, the continued success and leadership of the American biotech industry is not guaranteed. We cannot abandon the policies that have made our bioeconomy the strongest and most dynamic in the world, and we must work to update our policies to meet the challenges posed by the next wave of biotechnological innovations.”
