BiotechnologyIndustry Organization Company Profile

BIO began 2005 with the organization's first change in leadership since its founding in 1993. Former Pennsylvania Congressman Jim Greenwood is BIO's new president, taking the reins from Carl B. Feldbaum, who retired.

Greenwood brings to the organization more than two decades of experience as a state and federal legislator. In 12 years as U.S. congressman, he championed healthcare issues, and as chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee's Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigation he led investigations into cloning, bioterrorism and the corporate accounting scandals of 2002.

Greenwood's priorities for BIO include leadership on drug safety issues, supporting stem cell research and state-level funding for all biotechnology platforms, tax reform, and support for agricultural and industrial applications.

BIO's Beginnings

In 1993, when there were but a handful of biotechnology drugs on the market and the sequencing of the human genome was pegged for completion somewhere around 2005, two small Washington-based biotechnology trade organizations merged to create the Biotechnology Industry Organization, better known as BIO. One of the founding organizations, the Industrial Biotechnology Association (IBA), primarily represented larger, established companies on Capitol Hill and before federal regulatory agencies; the other, the Association of Biotechnology Companies (ABC), represented emerging companies and universities, and focused on technology transfer issues, meetings and other business development activities.
