An internationally renowned biotechnology company in Huntsville is planning to expand.
HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology says it's starting work on a new, 100,000-square-foot building that will provide extra work space. A groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for tomorrow.
The HudsonAlpha campus already has three buildings where more than 700 people are employed.
A company associated with HudsonAlpha, Conversant Bio, will be one of the first occupants of the new building. It provides human tissue and viable cell samples to researchers.
