Agbiotech Firm Chromatin Moves Research And Development To Lubbock, Texas
“Chromatin is excited to bring its industry-leading sorghum research program to the new Texas Tech Innovation Hub and Research Park,” said Daphne Preuss, Chromatin’s CEO. “We believe our team will benefit from the new facilities and the proximity to Chromatin’s production facilities as well as the Texas Tech community.”
“We are excited to welcome Chromatin as the first tenant at the research park,” said M. Duane Nellis, Texas Tech President in the University’s newsletter. “This collaboration is a natural fit for Texas Tech University, the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources and the South Plains region. The South Plains will benefit greatly from Chromatin’s presence on our campus.”
“What I’m really excited about is a major agricultural company in the United States is focusing its research and development efforts here in West Texas based upon the excitement of collaboration with our agricultural school and the opportunity through the research park to develop again their symbiotic relationship with the university, both to bolster their corporation but also the public interest in terms of new research into all things related to sorghum,” said Robert V. Duncan, Texas Tech vice President for Research.
