Abstract:
Biotechnology is the most coveted industry in the world, and competition to attract it is very high. In 2006, the N.C. Biotechnology Center completed its plan to increase the industry statewide by opening satellite offices. The Piedmont Triad, the East, Southeast, West, and Charlotte now all have their own biotech directors. Each of these satellite offices seeks to involve regional leaders in creating and implementing a biotech vision. Maurer examines developments in these satellite regions. The states ranks third nationally in biotechnology.
