Benefiting the Community

SCbio serves as a catalyst to ensure South Carolina’s future as a global leader in life sciences by creating a cohesive community uniting companies, universities, research institutions, government and industry associations. 

On behalf of the industry, SCbio encourages thoughtful legislative and regulatory solutions that allow life sciences companies to research, develop, and commercialize breakthrough medicines, devices, materials, therapies, solutions and cures, and to ensure patients around the world have affordable access to and can benefit from those advances.

Likewise, SCbio opposes policies which may limit innovation, threaten patient access, or negatively impact the South Carolina life sciences industry’s competitiveness in today’s global economy.

SCbio hosts an annual legislative event to connect with our South Carolina legislators.  If you are interested in participating or sponsoring our 2025 event, contact us
