Greater Los Angeles Advocacy

Greater Los Angeles Advocacy

Working to build a bigger and more connected biotech hub in the greater LA region.

In the greater Los Angeles region, we advocate for land use and zoning policies that identify areas for future life science developments along with predictable and timely permitting processes. We support the region’s workforce by partnering on diverse programs that prepare current and future life science talent regardless of their educational attainment levels. We also engage on traditional business issues such as taxes, reliability of utilities, enhancing transit systems, and availability of middle-income housing.
