The North Carolina Biosciences Organization (NCBIO) is established to aid the region's biomedical/bioindustrial community in legislative monitoring and lobbying. NCBIO represents the interests of technoscientific institutions and firms at the North Carolina General Assembly and before state courts, regulatory agencies and executive branch policy leaders. The organization also works with the national biotech trade association, BIO (Biotechnology Industry Organization), to monitor federal policies and inform members of North Carolina's congressional delegation in Washington, D.C. about the needs and priorities of the life science community. NCBIO maintains a close relationship with the North Carolina Biotechnology Center, another non-profit advocacy corporation, with which it works to strengthen the state's biotechnology industry. NCBIO has over 150 member companies.
