U.S.-Russia Biotechnology Cooperation

  • Two circumstances have recently made biotechnology cooperation between Russia and the Mid-Atlantic states particularly attractive:

    • First, the Russian government has moved to create a “National Program for the Development of Biotechnology in Russia in 2006-2015.”

    • Second, governments in the Mid-Atlantic region have enacted favorable policies that have further enhanced the region’s standing as a leader in the field of biotechnology.

  • It is within this context that MARBC has made Russian-American scientific and technical cooperation in biotechnology one of its top priorities.
