The Iowa Biotechnology Association, a 501(c)6 non-profit trade association, was founded in 1994 to unify Iowa's bioscience industry, academic research institutions and economic development organizations. We represent more than 100 members from across the state who are vested in Iowa and in the biotech industry.

The Association works steadily to establish a strong identity for the industry and to speak with one voice for our diverse membership, seeking to influence policies on both the state and federal level that enable more efficient growth for Iowa and the United States. Our Association focuses on fostering a stronger business and research climate, while working with leaders across the state to attract and retain bioscience talent, companies and funding. Iowa is abundant in talent, resources, and infrastructure – the organization focuses on industry vitalization.

Iowa’s bio-based economy already encompasses the development of industrial enzymes, livestock genetics, seed genetics, human gene research, nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals, advanced bio-composites, biomass technologies and healthy foods/beverages. Iowa is home to global companies known for developing new plant hybrids for grains, leading genetics for beef and dairy production and many contributions to the rapid expansion of enzymes used for ethanol bio-processing.

The Iowa Biotechnology Association is the state affiliate organization of the Biotechnology Industry Organization (Bio) and a member of the Council of State Bioscience Affiliates.
