Celebrating 35 Years of Life Science Transformations

This November marks NCBiotech's 35th anniversary and our long-term commitment to grow the life sciences in North Carolina. Through visionary leadership and statewide partnerships, North Carolina has grown from a handful of companies to a burgeoning hub that's home to large multinational companies.

We're collecting stories and testimonials about all the ways NCBiotech and the NC life science community have impacted you or your company. We would love for you to share your story with us.

SQZ Biotech tolerizing antigen carriers (TACs) may be the solution to expanding patient eligibility for AskBio’s adeno-associated virus (AAV) therapeutics. 

Neutralizing antibodies, whether pre-existing or developed, are a massive barrier to large populations of patients. The partnership opens a new door to genetic treatments; TACs allow for increased patient access and repeat treatment, which enables a full and durable benefit from the therapy.

Eastern NC Life Science

North Carolina’s Eastern Region boasts a broad range of life science strengths. The biomanufacturing capacity of the region supports the largest pharma companies in the world, including the largest contract manufacturing facility.

North Carolina is home to over 700 bioscience companies and more than 2000 service provider companies. Explore them all in the NCBiotech Company Directory.

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.

NCBiotech leads life science economic development for North Carolina. We help advance ideas from research to marketplace, overcoming all of the challenges in between. We are transforming businesses, technologies, professionals and whole sectors related to life science. Our continued mission to support innovation, commercialization, education and business growth has made North Carolina a global life science leader.
