NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The Wistar Institute broke ground today on a new $100 million research facility that will sit alongside its original lab, now nearly 120 years old, in Philadelphia's University City.
The company also opened a Life Science development laboratory, giving it 8,000 square feet of space and making the combined lab and center of excellence the largest Agilent research facility in the world.
Jackson Lab insisted in a statement that it intends to proceed with the project, explaining that despite the withdrawal it "will work with newly elected Florida Gov. Rick Scott to align the project with his goals for growing the state's economy."
