Membership Levels


This category includes any Louisiana-based, for-profit company that develops, manufactures or commercializes drugs or pharmaceuticals; medical devices or equipment; or agricultural, industrial or environmental products based upon the practical applications of biosciences. Core members also include for-profit research, medical and testing laboratories, and hospitals.


*In 2016, we are offering a dramatically reduced annual fee for core biotechnology companies that meet the bolded criteria below in this category.  This is because we recognize the unique financial challenges of emerging biotechnology companies and want to still provide them with access to LouisianaBio and the opportunities that come with being a state affiliate of BIO and the Council of State Bioscience Associations.

To take advantage of this reduced membership fee, please contact us at 504-427-7535 or download the special application form, complete it, and mail your check to the address on the form.
