JUPITER, Fla. (AP) -- Let the discoveries begin. The Scripps Florida Research Institute, part of a budding biotech hub in the state, is officially opening for business.
Gov. Charlie Crist is attending the facility's ribbon-cutting in Jupiter on Thursday. Scripps, a branch of the similarly named institute in California, will focus on biomedical science, drug discovery and technology development.
Florida is also set to become home to branches of the Torrey Pines Institute for Molecular Studies, the Burnham Institute for Medical Research and the Max Planck Society for the Advancement of Science.
