Founded in 2005, Bio Nebraska’s vision is to elevate Nebraska’s bio-ecosystem to benefit mankind by providing better healthcare, enhanced agriculture, and a cleaner and safer environment. They represent more than 90 bio-related entities in the human health, animal health, agriculture, and industrial biotech sectors.

Membership is available to academic, industry (commodity groups, pharma and health organizations, and retailers), affiliate (government agencies, nonprofits, and member associations), and startup stakeholders interested in cross-sector engagement to address global AMR challenges.
