iBIO’s mission is to make Illinois and the surrounding Midwest one of the world’s top life sciences centers: a great place to do business, and a great place to grow new technology ventures.
With active support from corporate, academic and government leaders, iBIO:
- promotes sound public policy at the local, state, and federal levels;
- improves Illinois’ and the Midwest’s ability to create, attract, and retain businesses; and
- through the iBIO Institute, delivers education and training for students at all levels, biotech professionals, and the general public
iBIO pursues this mission and work plan by promoting effective collaboration within and between the public, private, and academic/research sectors of our community.
