Welcome to The American Life Sciences Innovation Council (ALSIC)

The American Life Sciences Innovation Council (ALSIC) is a social welfare organization created to support policies that foster an environment in which medical innovation can thrive. Our mission is to educate the public and policymakers about the effects of government regulation on key factors that drive life science innovation: strong intellectual property protection; adequate reimbursement driven by market forces; unfettered collaboration with basic science partners; a transparent and predictable regulatory environment; and access to capital.  ALSIC concerns itself with developments in federal, state and international policy affecting the breadth of innovative life sciences including medical devices, biopharmaceuticals, and diagnostics.

ALSIC intends to engage thought leaders, trade and professional associations, policymakers, and the general public through long-term advocacy campaigns to bring attention to policies that will promote innovation in the life sciences.  Additionally, ALSIC will communicate its message on the issues surrounding life science innovation to the public through all forms of mass communication, including, but not limited to, print advertising, cable television and radio messaging, as well as e-mail and direct-mail communications.

ALSIC will share its research and policy positions with policymakers and encourage its supporters and the general public to communicate their views on these issues at all levels of government. ALSIC will seek the commitment of these policymakers to implement statutes, rules, and regulations consistent with principles supporting life science innovation.
