At the epicenter of this burgeoning growth is Innovation Park, which is anchored by the George Mason University (Mason) Science and Technology Campus, making it Northern Virginia’s only university-centered research corporate park. The Mason Sci-Tech campus houses multiple facilities and institutions that foster the life Sciences in Prince William County, including:
NIH/Mason Biomedical Research Labs (BSL-2 & BSL-3)
Institute for Biomedical Innovation with CAP/CLIA Compliant Clinical Proteomics Laboratory
Protein Microarray and Molecular Characterization Lab
Center for Applied Proteomics and Molecular Medicine
Sports Medicine Assessment and Testing Lab
Growing companies are encouraged to partner with Mason’s Protein Microarray and Molecular Characterization Laboratory, Mass Spectrometry Laboratory, Nanofabrication Laboratory and the Biochemistry Laboratories.
