NEBRASKA’S LIFE SCIENCES ADVOCATE
There are few areas of science and technology that hold greater promise for the 21st century than life sciences. Our ability to understand and manipulate living materials can help us solve some of the most significant challenges facing society today.
In Nebraska, the life sciences industry is thriving because its workforce has a flair for technology and the state’s tax incentive programs make it profitable for internationally known companies to expand. Nebraska is home to production facilities for Pfizer, Merck Animal Health, and Novozymes. The above, combined with Nebraska’s major medical centers in Omaha, the University of Nebraska bioscience research centers in Lincoln, and two technology parks, make Nebraska an appealing place for the life sciences community to do business.
Bio Nebraska Life Sciences Association (Bio Nebraska) was formed in 2005 as a nonprofit trade association dedicated to the development and growth of Nebraska’s bioscience industry through:
• Supporting basic research in the life sciences
• Aiding in the development of a highly educated work force; and
• Providing a welcoming environment for attracting new and expanding businesses
