Prevacus has set up a biology lab at Progress Corporate Park and is conducting experiments with its lead compound to demonstrate the effectiveness and safety in laboratory animals in preparation for clinical trials. Prevacus chose the site because of the great benefits of shared state-of-the-art equipment and collaborations with researchers from other companies.
Progress Corporate Park is a productive setting for the many bioscience, tech and other companies attracted to its site in North Central Florida. It is centrally located two hours from Orlando, Tampa, Jacksonville and Tallahassee. Park development has been shaped by the presence of a major UF spinout, RTI Biologics (Nasdaq: RTIX) as well as UF’s Sid Martin Biotechnology Incubator program. Two-thirds of the more than 30 Park businesses are bioscience or technology companies. Nearly 1,200 people now work in the Park.
