New Biotech Catalyst Newsletter from NC Biotech Center

Highlights include:

a) Novartis is opening a vaccine plant in Holly Springs, NC to create 350 jobs. Although such facilities often don't do the basic research that creates a relatively large number of PhD jobs, there have got to be a few forthcoming, right? :)

BioSpace will be holding another career fair on November 15th in Durham at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel. I will post to our event calendar once more details are available.

c) The NC legislature voted to revive the
SBIR/STTR small business grant matching program. They also increased funding to the NC Biotech Center, who says they will put the money towards things such as training programs and small business loans.
