Alpha Foundation provides $1.6 million gift to nurture research and economy
Huntsville, Ala -- With a growing roster of non-profit researchers and new tenant businesses at the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology, Lonnie McMillian, president of the Alpha Foundation, has stepped forward to ensure ongoing momentum in the development of Huntsville’s biotech sector. McMillian, who is also co-chairman of the HudsonAlpha Institute board of directors, has committed $1.6 million toward developing the green space that runs the entire length of the nearly mile-long Cummings Research Park Biotech Campus.
“Between prospects, the launch of new companies and the rapid growth of one of the HudsonAlpha tenants, it has become apparent that new construction on the campus is imminent,” said McMillian.
