Why Life Sciences Pennsylvania?

We chose the name, Life Sciences Pennsylvania, for a number of reasons – and believe us, the decision to change the name of your association is not one we took lightly.  Our team conducted research and interviews with more than 50 members of Pennsylvania’s life sciences community; we took a hard look at the evolution and growth of the association across the last five years; and, finally, we asked ourselves the question – did our former name, Pennsylvania Bio, truly reflect what we did, how we did it, and, most importantly, who we represent?  The answer was simple – not anymore.  We chose the name Life Sciences Pennsylvania to be more inclusive of the growing and diverse nature of Pennsylvania’s dynamic and innovative life sciences community – and hope you know – our mission and goal stays the same – to advance and enhance the life sciences business and policy climate in the Commonwealth.

Representing Pennsylvania’s Entire Life Sciences Industry

Life Sciences Pennsylvania focuses on just that – the incredible network of life sciences institutions and related industries that call Pennsylvania home.  The makeup of LSPA is as diverse as the life changing technologies being developed in the innovative labs and development facilities across the state – but includes academic research institutions, biotechnology, pharmaceutical, medical device and diagnostic, digital health, patient advocacy groups and so much more.
