Advocacy and Public Policy 

The Colorado BioScience Association (CBSA) has been driving advocacy and public policy initiatives since its founding in 2003. A respected voice at the State Capitol and in Washington D.C., CBSA has been successful in working collaboratively to pass legislation that promotes bioscience and innovation, while working to defeat proposals that would be detrimental to the bioscience industry in Colorado. CBSA is committed to maintaining an ongoing dialogue with key members of the state legislature, Colorado’s congressional delegation and the Governor’s office in order to support the creation, retention and recruitment of bioscience companies and promoting Colorado as a premier life sciences cluster.

Advocacy Partnerships

CBSA works closely with national organizations such as the Advanced Medical Technology Association (AdvaMed), the Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO), the Medical Device Manufacturers Association ( MDMA) and the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America ( PhRMA) to advocate for shared policy objectives to ensure that Colorado companies' voices are heard by federal elected officials. 

CBSA consistently is ranked as one of the states with the best advocacy initiatives – and success – by the Biotechnology Innovation Organization when compared to all bioscience trade associations across the U.S.
