Public Policy and Advocacy
NewYorkBIO actively lobbies for statewide support, focus and investment in New York’s bioscience industry including advocacy and public policy activities that build support for the industry with state, local and federal governments and influence key legislation. NewYorkBIO’s annual Advocacy Day brings together life sciences executives from across New York State to Albany to collectively educate, inform, and lobby legislators on issues of critical importance to the industry.
NewYorkBIO is also the officially designated state affiliate to the Biotechnology Industry Organization in Washington DC. Through this relationship, NewYorkBIO has a voice in federal policy that will shape the current and future biotechnology industry. NewYorkBIO leads the New York delegation at the annual BIO Fly-In, a program that brings over 1,000 leaders of the national biotech industry to lobby congress.
