I'm on my want to Research Triangle Park today

I don't travel to North Carolina very often, but I'm headed there today to visit a company in the Research Triangle Park area. I'm flying there and back in one day, so I still get to sleep in my own bed tonight. I'm not a big fan of business travel, so I try to sleep at home whenever I can.

As you probably know, Research Triangle Park is home to more than 170 global companies, including IBM, GSK, Syngenta, RTI International, Credit Suisse, and Cisco, that foster a culture of scientific advancement and competitive excellence. RTP is located between three major universities: Duke University in Durham, North Carolina State University in Raleigh, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

The Research Triangle Park's creation remains one of the most transformational public-private partnerships in national history.

The Research Triangle Park was globally ranked #4 in the 2010 International Ranking of Emerging Biotech Hubs by Business Facilities for its combination of excellent, low-cost infrastructure and highly networked scientific working groups.
