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 interaction 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. These are excellent opportunities to revisit established relationships, create new ones, and inform our state’s leadership about the future of Maine bioscience in their districts.

For Effective National Policy

BIOME regularly works with similar national organizations in support of broader federal legislation and initiatives. Our partnerships include the Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO) and Advanced Medical Technology Association (AdvaMed). We routinely with Maine’s federal delegation, either with their staff in Maine or at their offices in Washington, D.C., to support our industry.

The goals for all this activity are to assure that Maine remains an excellent state create and grow innovative companies and research institutions, and to support and drive new opportunities to improve on our already strong foundation.
