BioFlorida is a statewide association with seven volunteer-led Chapters across Florida led by Chapter Chairs and Leadership Team Members. The goal of each Chapter is to host a variety of events designed to showcase and connect each region's unique life sciences community. Please see below for a list of BioFlorida's regional Chapter Chairs.

If you are interested in participating in the regional Chapters, please contact the respective Chapter Chair below or email admin@bioflorida.com. There are no additional membership fees in the BioFlorida organization to be part of or to participate in a regional Chapter.
