Wednesday, November 17, 2021

The University of Pittsburgh is using a $100 million grant from the Richard KIng Mellon to build BioForge — a massive cutting-edge biomanufacturing facility designed to turn research into cures at the former LTV Coke Works, now known as Hazelwood Green. The BioForge facility has the potential to make Pittsburgh a global leader in life sciences and biomanufacturing as well as an engine for economic development — one that will draw companies and researchers from other parts of the country and the world to Pittsburgh.

The project  is expected to have addtional funding from Pitt and private partners and could be up and running in four to five years. The $100 million grant represents the largest in its history for a single project for the Richard King Mellon Foundation.
