The CRP collaborates with local entities such as BioConnect, North Carolina Biotechnology Center, Carolinas HealthCare System, North Carolina Research Campus, as well as dozens of local companies to:
- Collectively promote the health and life science assets of Charlotte USA to prospective businesses
- Provide a regional platform for networking and collaborative discussion
- Engage local entities in outreach to broaden our circle of contacts

Our partners in this regional initiative include:
North Carolina Biotechnology Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the growth of the biotechnology sector across the state. As the third leading state in this industry, the importance of biotechnology is not taken lightly. The Biotechnology Center is not a site for laboratory research or company incubation. Instead, it works to strengthen the research capabilities of North Carolina’s companies and universities, combining innovation with industry-led commercialization. There are five regional offices across the state, for more information about the Greater Charlotte chapter of the North Carolina Biotechnology Center, visit here.
NC BioConnect is an informal networking group whose purpose is to foster and support interest in the life sciences in and around the greater Charlotte region. Anyone involved in a life science-related field such as biotechnology, pharmaceutical research and production, medical devices, patent protection, venture capital or investment banking is invited to attend.
