The Tennessee Biotechnology Association (TBA) is a statewide organization of leading scientists, researchers, academicians, clinicians, legislators and business professionals working to foster, develop and support the life sciences in Tennessee. Current membership totals approximately 100.
The TBA serves as an information-clearinghouse that supports life science education, research, health care and technology-transfer programs. The organization also works to enhance access to capital for existing biotechnology companies, as well as support business recruitment to Tennessee, or outside investment in Tennessee companies, research and technologies. Recognized by the national Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO), the TBA became the twenty-fifth state biotechnology trade association in 1999.
