The university is “sitting on a lot of square footage and our expansion needs will require additional space,” BoroPharm CEO Todd Zahn told Xconomy. “It’s a very good resource for us to be able to expand without having to build."
The company, which also rents space from MSU, rents a 4,300-square-foot lab building at the ex-Pfizer site.
David Canter, executive director of the NCRC and the former leader of the 174-acre campus when it was operated by Pfizer, said last year that BoroPharm occupies a "very specialized chemistry facility."
The university has said it wants to continue to strike commercial partnerships to use parts of the ex-Pfizer site, which now has about 600 U-M employees. The university has launched a new business incubator for its own startup employees on the Pfizer campus.
