A research complex sponsored in part by the University of North Carolina at Charlotte is set to open its labs this year to scientists and startups involved in healthcare and nutrition research will help develop the Charlotte's biotech industry.
Charlotte is full of entertainment, including the Carolina Panthers football, Charlotte Bobcats Basketball, Knights Baseball, Checkers Hockey, and NASCAR. Also, including premier golf courses, performing arts center, theaters, white-water rafting, fishing, sailing, waterskiing, and the list goes on and on.
