The Oregon Bioscience Association promotes the growth and quality of the bioscience industry in Oregon through community, collaboration and commercialization and is a Portland State University Business Accelerator strategic partner-in-residence. Established in 1989 by a consortium of universities, public officials, educators and bioscience executives, Oregon Bio cultivates a regionally synergistic climate with the aim of fostering Oregon’s bioscience community.
Oregon Bio offers members exposure to a vast network of people, companies, and organizations in the biosciences and the resources and support associated with that network. Oregon Bio also provides a unified voice for the Oregon bioscience community by fostering commercialization and partnerships with government at all levels, as well as by enhancing Oregon’s bioscience business and research climate and accelerating the growth of the biosciences industry in all parts of Oregon. As the collective voice for the Oregon bioscience industry, Oregon Bio communicates the industry’s impact, issues and challenges to the public sector, educators and the general public.
Both the Portland State University Business Accelerator and PSU are members of the Oregon Bioscience Association, as are Accelerator companies-in-residence, DesignMedix, Floragenex, Home Dialysis Plus and Hydra DX.
