Wake Forest Innovation Quarter is a growing master-planned urban-based life sciences research park with 36 emerging and established life sciences and technology organizations employing a diverse and highly-skilled workforce.

Wake Forest Innovation Quarter is led and anchored by Wake Forest University Health Sciences (WFUHS)—consistently ranked among the nation’s best medical schools with top rankings for outside funding for research. WFUHS ranks #4 in the Southeastern U.S. in revenues from licensed intellectual property and #1 in NIH funding for its Public Health Sciences Program. Core research capabilities include: Clinical Trial Design and Oversight, Imaging, Structural Biology, Biomedical Engineering (with Virginia Tech) and Regenerative Medicine.

Wake Forest Innovation Quarter will ultimately encompass over 200 acres of downtown Winston-Salem with a potential build out of 5.7 million square feet of space. Recently, Wake Forest Innovation Quarter opened its state-of-the-art Biotechnology Research Facility 1 consisting of 180,434 sq. ft. of flexible wet lab and office space with approximately 43,000 sq. ft. of leasable space. The 5-story facility is home to the world-renowned Wake Forest University Institute for Regenerative Medicine, led by Dr. Anthony Atala and the WFUHS’s Lipids Sciences Research Program.

Today, Wake Forest Innovation Quarter includes five buildings providing close to 500,000 sq. ft. of lab, office, meeting and residential space. An additional 30,000 sq. ft. facility is scheduled for completion in 2007.
