Campus Celebrates Historic Milestone
Date:10/20/2008

Research Campus is poised to generate 30,000 jobs for the state of North Carolina in the next 12 - 15 years. "The North Carolina Research 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 Perdue. "Biotechnology is the next frontier of health science and as new discoveries are made, North Carolina will lead the way." The Mayor of Kannapolis, Robert S. Misenheimer, along with many other dignitaries from surrounding counties and cities participated in the dedication ceremony and tours of the buildings. Dr. Carol Spalding, recently named as President of Rowan Cabarrus Community College, was seated on the dais representing the community college for the celebration.

In addition to academic institutions, top officials from a number of companies who will have a strong presence on the NC Research Campus were on hand for the event. Those companies include Carolinas Healthcare System, Cabarrus Health Alliance, Dole Food Company, LabCorp, Pharmaceutical Product Development, Sensory Spectrum, Anatomics, Red Hat, Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute and the Charlotte Research Institute. Researchers from academia, science and industry will be focused on studying health, nutrition, and agriculture. Primary areas of concentration are cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, brain development, liver disease and osteoarthritis.

The ceremony was held at the main entrance on Research Campus Drive near the front steps into the David H. Murdock Core Laboratory Building. The public was invited to park in the new parking deck adjacent to the site of the event.

The 350 acre campus is a public-private venture created to foster collaboration and further knowledge in biotechnology, nutrition, agriculture, and health. The David H. Murdock Research Institute, located within the David H. Murdock C
