GreenLight Opens New Location at Research Triangle Park in North Carolina
MEDFORD, Mass., Jan. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of its continued growth, GreenLight Biosciences, Inc. has expanded to open a new location at the Alexandria Center for AgTech in Research Triangle Park (RTP), North Carolina, the largest research park in the United States. The new facility houses the company's insect, fungal and plant-based initiatives alongside a flexible greenhouse facility.
"RTP is an area known for scientific innovation, and we saw value in being surrounded by hundreds of companies focused on disrupting technologies," said Andrey Zarur, Ph.D., co-founder, president and CEO of GreenLight. "The work we are doing to create sustainable options for growing food and developing vaccines is an example of the types of radical solutions that are needed to address today's challenges, and we believe a presence in RTP will help us continue to attract top talent and ideas to bring these solutions to market."
GreenLight moved into the new facility in late December. The fully-integrated facility will provide bioinformatics, field testing, formulations, and operational support all under one roof. An adjacent greenhouse will offer plenty of space to study the impact of GreenLIght's RNA-based agricultural products. Approximately 30 employees representing different industries and job roles will work at the facility.
