Campus will strengthen our state's standing as a national biotech leader,
it will create new jobs, and its scientific innovations will improve the
health and well-being of people around the world," said Lt. Governor Bev

discoveries are made, North Carolina will lead the way." The Mayor of

surrounding counties and cities participated in the dedication ceremony and
tours of the buildings. Dr. Carol Spalding, recently named as President of
