Clemson dedicates biotech research complex

CLEMSON -- If you build it, they will come. Clemson University has built it, and they are coming. The field of dreams today is biotechnology for many research universities and states, seeking to attract major-league players in this dynamic industry capable of creating jobs and revenue.

Clemson University in Clemson, S.C., this week dedicates a biotech building, and science and business leaders are coming to learn about what the university and the Upstate have to offer. The keynote speech will be given by one of the nation's leading scientists.

On April 22 at 11 a.m., Clemson officially welcomes the world to its Biosystems Research Complex. The university's newest laboratory facility serves as a focal point for biotechnology research, a growing field that uses life sciences -- biology, genomics, biochemistry and bioengineering -- to create new products and processes in medicine, agriculture and industry. Connect to www.clemson.edu/bio for more information about university biotechnology programs, researchers and resources.

The keynote address will be given by Bruce W. Stillman, director and chief executive officer of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. Located in Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y., the internationally respected laboratory is a private, nonprofit research and educational institution with research programs focusing on cancer, neurobiology and plant genetics. Stillman is best known for his research on DNA replication, the process by which DNA is duplicated prior to cell division.

Other speakers will include university president James F. Barker, David A. Micklos of the Dolan DNA Learning Center at Cold Spring Harbor, Clemson provost Doris R. Helms and John W. Kelly, university vice president and dedication host.

Helms and Micklos will announce a South Carolina DNA Learning Center affiliated with the Dolan Center. The S.C. center will be located in J
