Ex­clu­sive: Top lob­by­ist at BIO leaves as trade group grap­ples with US-Chi­na ten­sions

Nick Ship­ley, the chief ad­vo­ca­cy of­fi­cer at the Biotech­nol­o­gy In­no­va­tion Or­ga­ni­za­tion (BIO), has left the trade group, End­points News has learned.

Ship­ley played a key role in Wash­ing­ton lob­by­ing on the biotech in­dus­try’s be­half, in­clud­ing a bill that would bar some Chi­nese life sci­ence com­pa­nies from do­ing busi­ness with US biotechs.

BIO and Ship­ley con­firmed his de­par­ture to End­points, and as of Wednes­day, his pho­to and de­tails were no longer list­ed on BIO’s web­site.
