Discovery Life Sciences Global Headquarters Opens in North Alabama

October 13, 2023

Modern laboratory in North Alabama with workstations, equipment, and cabinets under bright lighting.

HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology opened a new global headquarters earlier this week on its campus. The 93,000 sq ft building will be home to the Discovery Life Sciences’ (Discovery) global headquarters. Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey led the ribbon cutting ceremony.

“Discovery has continued to grow in Alabama and make an impact throughout the world,” Ivey said. “When Discovery chose the HudsonAlpha Biotech Campus in Huntsville for its global headquarters, I knew this was a milestone moment for Alabama as we work to recruit other life science companies to the state. With innovative leadership, a talented workforce, and a state that is focused on the life sciences, good days are ahead for Discovery.”

In its new facility, Discovery will unite its products and services, guaranteeing a streamlined process from sample collection to advanced data analysis and bolstering the reliability of research and development outcomes for scientists. This integration offers end-to-end solutions, spanning drug discovery to phase 3 clinical trials. Moreover, the facility will house one of the world’s most extensive commercial biospecimen inventories. Alongside this, Discovery’s advanced suite of services — including genomics, proteomics, molecular pathology, flow cytometry, and cell biology — will now be under one roof, aiming to deliver richer data to the global scientific community.

Brasfield & Gorrie served as the general contractor for the project. Fuqua & Partners designed the building.
