Pfizer Inc. has officially transferred an unused building on its Groton campus to create a bioscience and entrepreneurial hub, CURE Innovations Commons, Connecticut Governor Dannel P. Malloy has announced.

 “This location will help meet the demand for high quality biotech laboratory and office facilities by providing a much-needed networking center to allow entrepreneurs and startups to do what they do best – cultivate scientific talent, find like-minded partners, attract investment to grow and advance the research, development and discovery of cutting-edge new medicines and technologies,” Malloy said.

“The CURE Board and I are thrilled with this generous donation. The Commons will be a first-class facility, providing back-office support and mentors with on-site office hours as well as laboratory and office space,” said Susan Froshauer, president and CEO of CURE.
