Section 18A:64J-15 - Biotechnology center establishment
18A:64J-15. Biotechnology center establishment
The Legislature finds and declares that the field of biotechnology, which applies scientific and engineering principles to the processing of materials by biological agents to produce goods and services, is an important and dynamic addition to the world economy. Progress in biotechnology has included gene splicing, monoclonal antibody technology, protein engineering, and large scale plant and animal cell culture. New Jersey is by all measures a major center for the health care, pharmaceutical, chemical, and food processing industries, all of which now benefit from and will increasingly depend upon advances in biotechnology. In recognition of the economic importance of biotechnology to New Jersey industries, the Legislature further finds and declares that the establishment of an advanced technology center in biotechnology would strengthen the State and serve as a stimulus for technology-based industrial growth.
