The Center of Innovation for NanoBiotechnology celebrated the move to its new headquarters in downtown Durham on Tuesday night with an open house.

The event packed the 2,400-square foot center.

COIN is located at 202 South Roxboro Road, Suite 20.

Launched in 2009, COIN is backed by the NC Biotechnology Center, which provided $2.6 million in funding.

The group will be participating in the NC Nanotechnology Commercialization Conference on March 29-30 in Charlotte. That event is put on by the NC Department of Commerce.
