Our vision for the Members page is to have a company profile for all BioSA members that are SMMEs. Companies can display their product/service information or research areas as well as contact details. BioSA also intends using this information to prepare a brochure of biotech and life science companies in South Africa. Both the website and brochure will be marketing tools for BioSA that this will encourage networking and collaborations.

To create this vision, BioSA has partnered with a student completing a PhD (Economics) at Stellenbosch University, Ramazan Uctu. Ramazan will be contacting members soon to obtain their information for the website and brochure.
