At the Biotech Center, we are on a mission.


Life sciences are transforming the world. Vaccines that prevent disease. Spider silk vests that protect battlefield soldiers. Crops that thrive in drought.

Obstacles stand in the path from idea to product. We help navigate those obstacles.

We connect the company and university researchers; the funders and the small companies; the job seekers and job providers. We provide funding when few others do. We keep an eye on emerging biotech sectors. And we make sure North Carolina leads the way.

We’re a private, non-profit with headquarters in Research Triangle Park and offices in Asheville, Charlotte, Winston-Salem, Greenville and Wilmington. The General Assembly funds us to grow this industry statewide.

And we need your help to make it happen.

Our Vision

North Carolina: a global life science leader.
