Dignitaries from many fields gathered at NCBiotech to celebrate the launch of North Carolina's new brand, AgBio[sphere], to help "sell" the state's ag biotech prowess.
NCBiotech funding helped RTP blood technologies company Entegrion survive, create jobs and become an $88M defense contractor. One of its ideas also brought Beeken BioMedical to Raleigh, and jobs to Highland Industries in Kernersville.
Since 1999 Durham’s Parion Sciences, with NCBiotech funding help, has been developing better ways for humans to avoid problems with mucus. It recently got about $20 million to help seal the deal.
NCBiotech loans & grants have helped AskBio spin out of UNC with disease-whacking gene-transfer technologies targeting a wide range of maladies, and big pharma’s buying.
More than 500 of the biggest thinkers in ag biotech are talking about how to feed the world. Can’t make today’s event? Follow our staff coverage.
