NIEHS "North Campus" Incubates Small Businesses
Prior to completion of the Rall Building in 1984, most of the NIEHS laboratories were located on the "North Campus," a cluster of buildings and trailers on Alexander Drive nestled between Stonesthrow Apartments and Highway 54.
The 30-acre facility is owned by the Research Triangle Foundation. Many of the original buildings have been replaced; however some remain with a new focus. The Foundation is using the site, now known as Park Research Center, as a business incubator and hopes to attract many small biotech companies with attractively priced flexible leases. The Foundation also provides guidance for start ups, including preparing business plans and leads on obtaining private funding.
