The BioPharma Crescent is located in Eastern North Carolina, about halfway between Raleigh (to the west) and the Atlantic Ocean (to the east). Our five counties include Edgecombe, Johnston, Nash, Pitt and Wilson. The region’s impressive road network (I-40, I-95, Future I-87, US 264) enables easy access to major consumer markets, international airports and deepwater ports. And our collective colleges, universities, and biopharma-specific training network can provide local businesses with a highly-educated and well-trained workforce.
