AboutBioscience.org - Information for North Carolina residents about bioscience
Excerpted from the website:
- States are spending billions of dollars to support bioscience research, build new facilities and buy needed equipment — and North Carolina is no exception. Regional business-government partnerships are cultivating bioscience incubators and research parks throughout the state and are helping create research centers at many of the state’s universities. Collaborative funding grants are providing matching funds to encourage academic/industrial interaction, and two college-level specialized training programs are addressing the educational and talent needs of the biomanufacturing industry. With so much exciting growth and activity, most North Carolinians would truly agree that we have entered the “Bio Century” (Source: Growing the Nation’s Biotech Sector: State Bioscience Initiatives 2006).
