Who We Are

The Future of Bioscience

The New Mexico Bioscience Authority was created as the State’s first public-private partnership to build a new model of bioscience industry. New Mexico needs a platform and a coordinated effort to grow bioscience organizations.

From funding, to incentives, to community outreach and labor initiatives, the NM Bioscience Authority connects all the potential collaborators: universities, R & D, technology transfer, entrepreneurs, funders, legislators and workforce – to grow bioscience in NM. We are well-poised to help create a thriving bioscience industry.
