Driven by small-company innovators, the bioscience industry has also mobilized in an unprecedented manner to address the global COVID-19 pandemic, while continuing to develop other life-saving and life-enhancing products and services for the U.S. and the world. America’s bioscience industry as an innovator and economic driver has never been more important, both for our health and our economic stability.
