Policy & Resources

Keeping a pulse on what matters 

As the state association for Washington’s life science industry, Life Science Washington stays on top of the latest policy developments, rules and regulations. We have a dedicated lobbying team in Olympia and we work directly with our congressional delegation to ensure the voice of our industry is heard on federal policy issues.

Our State.
Our Focus. 

From investments in workforce and STEM infrastructure at our colleges and universities to securing an “essential” designation for life science companies during the pandemic, LSW policy advocacy keeps Washington’s life science industry thriving.
