Welcome to Oklahoma BioScience Association
We create partnerships, educate communities, and influence policies, in support of our life-changing industry.
OKBio partners with the Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO) to provide our sponsors with the largest cost-savings program in the life sciences industry. This program, BIO Business Solutions, provides discounted pricing and other benefits on products and services to companies such as VWR, Office Depot, Chubb, UPS and UniFirst.
On average, OKBio sponsors participating in this program saved over $50,000 on lab supplies, UPS shipping, insurance and more. Think what your organization could save.
OKBio’s affiliation with the BIO, the world’s largest biotechnology organization, provides access to federal advocacy, business development and communications services.
BIO organizes the BIO International Convention — the largest convention in the industry. OKBio and the Greater OKC Chamber sponsor a partnering booth for Oklahoma-based bioscience and life science companies to effectively network with and gain attention from global industry representatives at this annual event.
