Description

The Hamner Vision for a Global Gateway Campus for Life Sciences Technology and Business Development

Speaker: Dr. William (Bill) Greenlee, President and CEO, The Hamner Institutes for Health Sciences

The Hamners Institutes for Health Sciences (The Hamner) is an independent, nonprofit organization that offers an open, collaborative, and cross-disciplinary approach to translational biomedical research. Based in The Research Triangle Park (RTP), The Hamner strives to act as a catalyst with global academic institutions, industries, and government to support innovative research and rapid technology development.

The Hamner is uniquely positioned to bring together world-class research from the three regional flagship universities: Duke University, North Carolina State University, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Current plans are to work with local universities to organize the strategic programming of a new 150,000 SF building on The Hamner campus that will set the stage for creation of a new joint institute. Future plans include staged campus expansion to ultimately create a 1Million SF translational research community unique in the southeastern United States.
