MISSOURI BIOTECHNOLOGY ASSOCIATION - WORKFORCE INITIATIVES
MOBIO aggressively pursues and engages opportunities that reach, educate, and inspire the future workforce. We fortify the strength of Missouri's life science culture through:
· Progressive technology to promote STEM careers in workforce development
· Securing investments for biotech's educational allies
· Providing a platform for career exploration
BIOTECH for MO
This initiative is led by three bioscience industry organizations representing the bioscience innovation community and bioeconomy across Missouri, BioSTL, BioNexus KC, and MOBIO. BIOTECH for MO is made possible through an investment from the State of Missouri.
The Bioscience Industry Occupational Training and Equity Collaborative Hub for Missouri (BIOTECH for MO) provides a statewide centralized hub for education, industry, government, and community partners to design and implement programs that train and recruit individuals for key bioscience occupations. This statewide workforce development platform will strengthen Missouri’s bioscience workforce, help safeguard domestic drug supply chains, and support underrepresented and underserved communities to secure quality employment in the bioscience sector.
