[…] Because of North Carolinaâ€™s depth and breadth of biotechnology talent, the advantage of locating the plant near our headquarters and pilot manufacturing plant in Winston-Salem, NC, and the stateâ€™s interest in continuing to grow its biotechnology industry, we determined that adding manufacturing capacity here in Greensboro would be in the best interest of ProKidney, its shareholders and its local stakeholders. We look forward to continue growing our business along with the state that we have called home since our founding.â€ […]
â€œAs a former executive in the biotech industry, Iâ€™m proud to see North Carolinaâ€™s continued leadership in this industry, which means so much for both our economy and for peopleâ€™s health and wellbeing.

As our First in Talent strategic plan makes clear, weâ€™ll continue to invest in our people and the educational systems that create opportunities for everyone.â€ […]
