The new, 2,000-square-foot facility will provide work space for Newell. Viral optioned the rights to commercial develop her work through the University of Colorado. That includes therapies for HIV and AIDS, Lyme disease, cancer, strep, and staph.
The center will employ a small research team, but it said it will eventually hire many more workers. The grant will be administered over five years. The Georgetown cluster is already planning for five new wet labs, a second tissue culture lab, a Class 1000 clean room, and a nanotechnology optical laboratory.
