The Murdock Foundation has made the commitment to provide an access point to the most advanced technologies in the world to further improve health and the quality of human life.
The Campus will have a significant impact on the local workforce. It is estimated that there will be in excess of 5,000 research positionsand 30,000 ancillary jobs at the campus.
The Campus sits on 350 acres in the heart of downtown Kannapolis. Since the loss of textiles in 2004, the local economy has suffered. With the development of the campus the entire community will be revitalized.
