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 flare 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 Novartis, Zoetis, Celerion, 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.
The mission of Bio Nebraska is to be the champion of biotechnology and an advocate for its member organizations promoting academic, industry, and government partnerships to foster the growth of life sciences within Nebraska.
Nebraska biotechnology researchers expand the boundaries of science to benefit mankind by providing better healthcare, enhanced agriculture, and a cleaner and safer environment, hence creating opportunities for economic development within the state.
