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.
