We are committed to building the biosciences industry in Arizona by providing access to the key resources, connections and information in our biosciences community. This provides the foundation to be able to Connect, Collaborate, Innovate and Succeed; thus supporting the growth of a thriving economic environment for Arizona’s Bioscience Industry today and in the future.
AZBio is the State Affiliate of the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) located in Washington, D.C. and is acknowledged as such by the international bioscience organization, BIO. We work very closely with BIO on national issues and opportunities to bring Arizona and the members of our Arizona Bioscience Community to the national and international stage. We also work with AdvaMed, PhRMA and other national and international organizations to move our Arizona Bioscience Industry forward faster.
A team effort is required to support and grow Arizona’s entire bioscience industry, including all the individuals, institutions and companies that comprise it, into a greater position of national and international leadership and prominence. Working together, our bioscience industry has made great progress toward attaining this goal in recent years and AZBio is convinced we can accomplish much more in the years to come. Arizona’s achievements in bioscience are a source of genuine pride for our state. If you have not yet had an opportunity to view the most recent Bioscience Road Map Report that was released in January of 2012, we encourage you to do so.
