MdBIO, Inc., began in 1991 as the Maryland Bioprocessing Center, Inc. Its original board of directors was appointed by the Governor in December 1991. The Board renamed the Center as MdBIO, Inc., in July 1997.

MdBIO is a private, nonprofit organization created by industry leaders from across Maryland in conjunction with The Johns Hopkins University, the University System of Maryland, and Maryland State government. MdBIO supports and promotes the manufacturing and commercial development of biotechnology in Maryland.

To capitalize on the State's renowned biomedical research base, a "scale-up" biopharmaceutical manufacturing facility was built in East Baltimore at the Bayview Industrial Park, 5901 East Lombard Street. The facility, known as the BioCenter, opened in the summer of 1996. The facility is leased to the BioScience Contract Production Corporation, an independent for-profit contract manufacturing company. Lease payments provide MdBio's main source of revenue for the near term.

MdBIO's Board of Directors is self-perpetuating. It consists of fifteen members, three serving ex officio.
