Our Mission & Value

Membership benefits include discounted admission to our events and to many of our partner events. We also have a networking group on LinkedIn where our members discover powerful new business contacts, keep in touch with one another, and stay informed of current news. BioOhio provides business development assistance through facilitating introductions that benefit your business or accelerate your career.
Advocacy – Local, State & Federal Government Relations
BioOhio works with local, state, and federal agencies, officials and representatives to promote Ohio’s bioscience industry. Members can engage in government relations through the BioOhio Advocacy & Public Policy Committee and legislative-focused events such as BioOhio Statehouse Day, Federal Legislative Fly-ins, and roundtables with public officials.
BioOhio collaborates in government engagement with our national partners as the Ohio affiliate of Advanced Medical Technology Association (AdvaMed), Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO), Medical Device and Manufacturing Association (MDMA), and Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA). BioOhio’s local partners in government relations are G2G Consulting and The Credo Company.
One thing all members have in common is the need for top-level talent. BioOhio is delighted to offer services that address this need and deliver a strong, competitive advantage.

Ohio’s Bioscience Community: Industry Intelligence and Visibility
BioOhio provides members with valuable industry information and a venue for increased awareness and visibility.
BioOhio has long been a go-to source for data on the bioscience industry in our state. Data includes statewide and regional analysis of bioscience employment, wages, new company growth, acquisitions, private investment, research funding, bioscience related graduation rates, and much more. While much of this data is summarized and published in The Ohio Bioscience Report, BioOhio members have access to additional details and materials not otherwise released.
News from members receives special highlights among industry stories on BioOhio.com and is often featured in blog posts, tweets and other social media outlets. Members also receive visibility in BioOhio publications that include The Ohio Bioscience Report, the Ohio Bioscience Directory, member list, newsletters, and other materials. Members have the opportunity to speak at, volunteer at, or host events at their facilities as well as be visible through contributions to policy letters and reports.
