Thought Leader Select has joined the North Carolina Biosciences Organization (NC Bio), as the company’s membership was accepted during the monthly meeting of the organization’s board of directors on May 23.
NCBIO promotes growth and development of North Carolina’s bioscience industry, through advocacy for state and federal public policies. These policies encourage the growth of life science companies, support the development of a strong life science workforce, and promote research and technology transfer at universities and other institutions including support for capitalization and commercialization of products.
At state level, NC Bio works to advance the interests of the life sciences community in North Carolina with the state’s General Assembly, state courts, regulatory agencies, and executive branch policy leaders. At federal level, NC Bio collaborates with the national Biotechnology Innovation Organization, AdvaMed, PhRMA, and MDMA to support appropriate federal policies and to keep members of North Carolina’s congressional delegation informed as to the needs and priorities of the life science community.
Founded in 1994, the organization also provides a wealth of education and networking opportunities for its member companies.
Thought Leader Select’s founder and President, Paul Meade, represented the company at the May 23 board meeting of NC Bio. “We are honored to be accepted into NC Bio, an organization that’s earned its place as the state’s premier advocacy organization for the industry we’ve served since our founding more than 13 years ago,” he said. “Thought Leader Select is proud to be a part of a group that’s made such a huge impact on the biosciences industry over the last 25 years. We look forward to interacting with the other members and helping this organization remain vibrant and relevant in the years to come.”
