Technology Series Returns May 22 at Biotech Place
The Future of Research Parks and Biotech in Winston-Salem, the Triad & North Carolina. With the opening of Biotech Place, Winston-Salem’s attention has once again been focused on the importance of Piedmont Triad Research Park (PTRP) to our future economic growth. But PTRP’s and Winston-Salem’s ultimate success will not be determined on their own. Additional efforts in Greensboro and throughout North Carolina are strengthening the position of our entire region in regards to developing our technology-based economy, particularly in the area of biotechnology. This discussion will provide an opportunity for the public to learn about the benefits the PTRP and Gateway University Research Park -- and the companies and individuals working in them -- provide to our community; how they are a catalyst for job growth and economic development; how their plans complement each other and additional efforts across North Carolina; and how many resources are available to those working in a research park environment. Panel: Dr. Ed Abraham – Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center/PTRP; John Merrill – Gateway University Research Park; Nancy Johnston – NC Biotechnology Center, Piedmont Triad Office; Phil Shugart – Carolina Liquid Chemistries, PTRP tenant.
