Biotechnology Industry Organization
Biotechnology researchers expand the boundaries of science to benefit mankind by providing better healthcare, enhanced agriculture, and a cleaner and safer environment. The mission of BIO is to be the champion of biotechnology and the advocate for its member organizations –both large and small.
Kansas Bioscience Association
KansasBio is a unified voice representing the biosciences in Kansas. Across the human, plant, animal and industrial biosciences, KansasBio is focused on enhancing the business and research climate and working with leaders across the state to attract and retain bioscience talent, companies and funding.
Kansas Bioscience Authority
The Kansas Bioscience Authority was created in April 2004 when Governor Kathleen Sebelius signed into law the Kansas Economic Growth Act (KEGA). An independent entity of the state, it is governed by a Board of Directors composed of prominent local and national leaders in the areas of science, technology, and business. The Bioscience Authority will guide the state in the investment of over $580 million dollars generated through KEGA.
Missouri Biotechnology Association
The Missouri Biotechnology Association is focused on maintaining the growth of the biotechnology industry generated by the research and development communities of Missouri. While we have made great strides in keeping our local talent, Missourians have not done enough to attract both national and international interests to be included in our burgeoning biotechnology community. Thus, the members of MOBIO firmly believe that it is up to Missourians to grow our biotechnology industry through research, scholastics, new laws and government.
