The Pennsylvania Biotechnology Center (PABC) is a nonprofit life sciences incubator dedicated to the creation of a world-class biotechnology center; to the promotion of regional economic development and job creation; and to the education and training of tomorrow’s researchers.
Funded in part by a grant from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the 150,000 square foot facility opened in August 2006 by the Hepatitis B Foundation. The PABC grew significantly in 2022 with the opening of a new 37,000 square foot building on the Doylestown campus and the opening of B+labs at Cira Centre in University City, Philadelphia.
Managed by the Baruch S. Blumberg Institute, the PABC seeks to advance biotechnology in Bucks County and the surrounding region, maximize synergies between nonprofit scientists and their commercial colleagues, and launch new ideas and discoveries that will make a difference.
