White House Sought Input on Bio-Industry Initiative
The Biden administration, via its Office of Science & Technology Policy (OSTP) requested input recently on implementing the new National Biotechnology and Biomanufacturing Initiative.
BIO (Biotechnology Innovation Organization, of which MichBio is a state affiliate), responded with recommendations, which include, among others:
- Reduce trade barriers that interfere with the biotech supply chain.
- Increase capacity for surges in manufacturing to enhance our ability to respond to emergencies.
- Invest in education to build biotech’s human capacity.
- Protect IP through the World Trade Organization (WTO) and other bodies.
