CIPT Has a New Home!
We moved into our new offices at Wake Forest Biotech Place in downtown Winston-Salem in Feb. We celebrated our grand opening after our semiannual Advisory Board meeting in March with food, drinks and tours of the facility.

The building now known as Wake Forest Biotech Place was built in 1937 by R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company, and is 242,000 sq. ft. with 65,869 glass blocks composing the façade.  

We share the same building as one of our research partners - the Virginia Tech-Wake Forest University School of Biomedical Engineering and Sciences .
