PRECISION BIOSCIENCES OPENS FACILITY IN RTP P H O T O G R A P H Y BY M I C H A E L M C E L R OY In July, Precision BioSciences, a genome-editing company with a mission to “treat human diseases and create healthy and sustainable food,” celebrated the opening of a manufacturing facility that it said was the first in the U.S. “dedicated to genome-edited cancer therapy products.” On July 18, Precision employees, guests and community leaders gathered at the facility in Research Triangle Park, a property operated by Longfellow Real Estate Partners, for drinks and a tour of the labs. Precision CEO and Co-founder Matthew Kane said the space represented an “important inflection point for our company,” which went public in March and closed its IPO with $145 million.
