Advertisers and Sponsors are an essential part of our ability to curate and amplify Michigan stories. BioMatters is a unique publication - few, if any, other state organizations generate a collection of articles like what is found in BioMatters magazine and the existence of such a robust representation of the entire Michigan industry sets our state apart from others at regional, national, and international events.

Advertising Opportunities

MichBio members can purchase BioMatters ads at discounted rates.

Nonmembers may find that the difference in the member and nonmember ad rate is large enough that it would make more financial sense to join us as a member first, then purchase an ad at the member rate (and be able to take advantage of all the other member benefits).
