For Effective State and Local Policy
BioME advocates for effective public policy that supports the growth and development of the bioscience industry in Maine. BioME has testified to the Maine legislature and engaged public and private stakeholders and Maine citizens through Op/Eds in local and interactions with the media. Our goal is to provide fact-based information and serve as the trusted voice of the industry when necessary.
BioME provides venues to enhance the dialogue in Augusta, such as our annual Legislative Reception.
For Effective National Policy
BioME regularly works with similar national organizations in support of broader federal legislation and initiatives. Partners include the Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO) and Advanced Medical Technology Association (AdvaMed). BioME meets with Maine’s federal delegation in Maine and at their offices in Washington, D.C., to support our industry.
Our goal is to assure that Maine remains an excellent state to create and grow innovative companies and research institutions, and to support and drive new opportunities to improve on our already strong foundation.
