Modern Healthcare

Two advocacy organizations representing the California biomedical and life science sectors will merge to create a unified voice for the nearly 1,300 companies they represent, the groups announced Monday. The San Diego -based California Healthcare Institute and the San Francisco, Calif.-based Bay Area Bioscience Association will merge next year to become the California Biomedical Innovation Alliance. The new organization, expected to be formed by the end of the first quarter of 2015, will represent the state’s “entire biomedical ecosystem” under one roof, a press release said.
