Thank you for your interest in the Bioscience Association of West Virginia!
BioWV members come from all segments of the bio- and life-science industries in West Virginia and across the mid-Atlantic region.
Membership in BioWV offers your organization the opportunity to play a role in West Virginia’s life science industry through industry networking and professional development events, like the annual WV Bioscience Summit, State Policy Leader Meeting, regional industry get-togethers and other initiatives.
BioWV member companies are eligible for discount programs on items such as lab supplies and equipment, insurance, basic office supplies, national press releases and more. Since the annual membership fee is as little as $250 for bioscience firms with fewer than 9 employees, you could save many more times that just in the savings from these group benefits.
Any corporation, partnership, association, or other entity organized for profit, a substantial percentage of whose business activities involve biotechnology, genomics, bioinformatics or related new technologies, is eligible for membership.
