Because Patients Can’t Wait®, BioNJ advocates for the life sciences industry in New Jersey and in Washington, addressing issues and programs on both the State and Federal levels. As the sole New Jersey affiliate of the Biotech Innovation Organization (BIO), we work collaboratively with BIO and other industry organizations to advance issues that bring faster treatments and cures to Patients and support the life sciences in New Jersey.

Advocacy and public policy are integral to our mission at BioNJ. Our program is based on support for these principles:

  • Advocating for policy decisions that will nurture and grow New Jersey’s life sciences ecosystem, a leading economic driver and job creator for our State
  • Increasing opportunities for engagement for our BioNJ Members
  • Creating enhanced collaborations that lead to more innovation and scientific research and development conducted in New Jersey
