Biotechnology & Biomedical Technology Institute

The Biotechnology and Biomedical Technology Institute (BBTI) at the UW Bothell is a resource for individuals and organizations in the region and state with an interest in the development of the biotechnology and medical device industries. It seeks to engage government and business leaders, and the citizens of Washington State, in an ongoing conversation about the future of these technologies, their implications for society, and their role in the local, state, national, and global economies. To that effect, it:

  • Provides a range of information, educational opportunities, and research
  • Serves as a forum for scholars, business and government leaders, students, and citizens to meet, exchange information, and learn from each other
  • Seeks to promote UW Bothell's unique position to play a leadership role in this industry for years to come
Our state is one of the great regions for the life sciences. The BBTI offers a potent opportunity to take advantage of those assets to enhance and build the life science commercial sector--to create companies, jobs, and products that save lives. J. Thomas Ranken, Former CEO,  VizX Labs
