HUNTSVILLE, Alabama — Officials at the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology on Monday marked the start of a significant expansion project at its biotech campus, positioning the Huntsville facility for new scientific advances.
The expansion will consist of two facilities: a global headquarters for Discovery Life Sciences, and new state-of-the-art laboratory and greenhouse space for HudsonAlpha’s Center for Plant Science and Sustainable Agriculture.
“Alabama has a new accolade: global headquarters to a renowned and respected biosciences company,” Governor Kay Ivey said. “This will undoubtedly strengthen Alabama’s biosciences recruitment efforts and increase the economic impact to the city, state and region.”
In November 2020, Governor Ivey announced that HudsonAlpha had been awarded $15 million though the Public School and College Authority for the expansion project.
