Home to internationally and nationally-based companies such as Vetter Pharma, Lanzatech, Charles River, and NorthShore University HealthSystems along with other life science, high-tech and innovative companies spawned from Northwestern University such as NuMat Technologies, Cour Pharmaceuticals, Cyclopure and Flexterra, the park employs over 1,600 workers.
