Biobased Industry Center Members

The Biobased Industry Center’s advisory board is composed of representatives from industry and non-government organizations. Industry partners that provide financial support for the center have a representative on the board.

The board meets twice per year with the center’s leaders and principal investigators to identify and prioritize research areas as well as provide advice and guidance regarding issues, challenges, and opportunities of concern and importance to the industry. The board also develops the request for proposals, the selection process for center research projects, and linkages with additional industry partners.
