Celerion has been conducting clinical research studies for over 50 years in Lincoln, NE for pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies around the world, for investigational medicines currently in research and development, to treat a wide variety of illnesses and conditions.
Celerion will be located on the first level of the Rise Building, NIC’s newest building. An open house will be hosted at the Rise Building in March. This event will provide Celerion staff the opportunity to learn about ways to partner with faculty and students, and for visitors to learn more about pharmaceutical research opportunities at Celerion and the drug development process.
“Celerion is a great long-term fit for NIC,” Duncan said. “Their clinical research expertise will be invaluable as the Nebraska Food for Health Center continues to develop and companies in the Biotech Connector mature.”
