    The trade association of the bioscience industries in Greater Los Angeles and neighboring communities

Southern California Biomedical Council (SoCalBio) is a nonprofit, member-supported trade association that serves the biotech, medtech, IVD  and digital health communities in the six counties that comprise the Greater Los Angeles region (Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura, Santa Barbara, Riverside and San Bernardino).

SoCalBio’s programs help local firms gain access to capital, potential partners and other business services. The Council also promotes technology transfer and workforce training, while informing policy makers and the public at-large about the benefits of the region’s bioscience industry.

SoCalBio is open to membership by firms and organizations engaged in all aspects of bioscience research, technology development and commercialization.

  • The first is in West Los Angeles, from Santa Monica and Beverly Hills in the north to Torrance in the south.

    SoCalBio’s Group Purchasing Program not only saves our company money but also administrative time; which in the end also saves money. We have officially been in the program for about one month, but in that month, we have seen savings of up to 70% on our compressed gases and an average savings of 45% on laboratory supplies.
