Statement from Biocom California and MassBio on America's Biotechnology Leadership and National Security


The following statement can be attributed to Joe Panetta, Biocom California's president and CEO, and Kendalle Burlin O'Connell, Massachusetts Biotechnology Council's (MassBio) CEO and president.

"We strongly support efforts to continue American leadership in the biotechnology sector. We must look at ways to expand domestic capabilities for pharmaceutical research and manufacturing to ensure patient access to innovative medicines often developed by smaller companies that are most reliant on federal grants or contracts. We know that a strong American biotechnology sector is a key national security asset and will continue to work with policymakers and industry leaders to accomplish our shared goals of promoting access to innovation for American patients while protecting our national security."
