Celebrating the Business of Transformation
We all chose life sciences to make a difference. To cure diseases. To improve the environment. To feed the world.
But it’s easy to focus on the details of our day— experiments, presentations, meetings, white papers, selling technologies, services and products—losing sight of that bigger picture. Fortunately, North Carolina created the Biotechnology Center to nurture our life science community and to keep us all focused on that big picture.
