The first of six public meetings was held July 13 for the Lab’s proposed second campus. The first meeting was held in Alameda for the Alameda Point project. A standing-room only crowd filled an art deco theater on the former Navy base. Associate Lab Director for Biosciences and JBEI director Jay Keasling presented a scientific primer of the lab while Chief Operating Officer Jim Krupnick detailed the specifics of the Lab’s search for a second campus.The proposed second campus is an effort to consolidate the Lab’s off-site biosciences programs, provide room for future growth and to provide the Lab long-term cost savings. A final decision on a preferred site is scheduled for late November.
