As many of our colleagues are now aware, Georgia Bio (and the Georgia BioEd Institute) is separating from the Center for Global Health Innovation (CGHI) and adopting a more incremental, industry-focused approach to our efforts. Georgia Bio is recommitting to its core mission of advocating for, connecting, educating and inspiring our member enterprises and stakeholders in much the same way our colleagues have known Georgia Bio since its inception in 1989. To achieve this, the organization transitioned from a 501c3 to an independent 501c6 organization, Georgia Biosciences Organization, Inc. Our new EIN# is 27-3855537.
What About My Membership?
CGHI members will receive complimentary membership with Georgia Biosciences Org. until their next scheduled renewal date when they will be invited to renew with Georgia Biosciences Org. We are happy to work to establish the organization as a new vendor with your company/organization as needed.
On Wednesday, October 18, Georgia Bio CEO Maria Thacker led a virtual ‘town hall’ to discuss the state of Georgia Bio, Georgia BioEd and the larger life science ecosystem in the state. If you weren’t able to join us, or would like to share the conversation with colleagues, the recording is here.
The 2023 Georgia Life Sciences Summit – November 1
The 2023 edition of the Georgia Life Science Innovation Summit is right around the corner. The summit, more concentrated in scope yet expansive in industry inclusion, will be Wednesday, November 1st at the Sandy Springs Arts Center. The program is coming along nicely including a recently secured keynote or plenary address featuring Dr. Ted W. Love, former President and CEO of Global Blood Therapeutics and 2023-2025 Chair of the Board of the Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO).
