MOBIO's Legislative Benchmarking Tour



This program, originated and hosted by the Missouri Biotechnology Association, is a four-month, four-phase nonpartisan legislative leadership education initiative and fact-finding tour.



The program’s objectives are to:


  • Promote engagement between Missouri’s policymakers and the state’s biotechnology leaders;
  • Broaden awareness of biotechnology’s economic impact across Missouri;
  • Share experiences from other states engaged in the biotechnology sector; and, ultimately,
  • Sustain informed, open dialogue to facilitate bi-partisan development for long-term and sound public policy.

 "The MOBIO BIO Benchmarking 2013 four day tour was absolutely the best 4 days that I would have sfont-family: 'Lucida Handwriting'; pent learning and realizing the importance of the trends of the future in animal health, human health and plant sciences. As a pharmacist, businessman and legislator I would recommend this tour to all legislators and the citizens of Missouri to hear the value and importance of bioscience.  The state of Missouri has some of the best and smartest scientists and the buildings, equipment, labs and intellectual intelligence are great and outstanding assets. This is the trend and our country’s future." 

Representative Lynn Morris – District 140
