From discovery to enterprise
Genomics – the study of genes, gene sequences and their functions – has yielded unprecedented insight into what makes us, and the world around us, work.  Each new discovery offers vast potential for improving life as we know it, but discovery is just the beginning of the journey.  Taking what we know and transforming it into solutions representing significant advancements in health, well-being and livelihood is the ultimate destination.

The HudsonAlpha Institute is the cornerstone of a 150-acre biotech campus strategically located in Cummings Research Park, the nation's second largest research park.  The non-profit institute is an integral part of Alabama's life sciences community.
