InterTech Science Park

 

BRF maintains and promotes the InterTech Science Park, an 800-acre urban Brownfields, smart growth initiative located in central Shreveport. The resident companies represent pharmaceutical, digital and entertainment media, drug discovery, venture capital support and environmental industries.

About InterTech Science Park

Initiated in 1997 by community leaders to provide specialized facilities with laboratory, cleanroom, manufacturing and office space for high tech companies, the InterTech Science Park has grown to include eight facilities with 325,000 square feet and over 25 tenants. The purpose was to create an environment and space that would attract creative companies to Shreveport and retain home-grown talent.

BRF Facilities

  • The Virginia K. Shehee Biomedical Research Institute, a 160,000 square foot, $37 million research facility with 56 laboratories where 200 investigators and technicians from LSU Health Sciences Center in Shreveport conduct basic research.
  • InterTech’s central facility, InterTech 1, is a 60,000 square foot, $12.2 million facility that houses BRF headquarters and is an incubator for new bioscience and technology businesses.
  • A 33,000 square foot cleanroom manufacturing facility, where pharmaceutical company Alfasigma now resides.
  • The new Center for Molecular Imaging and Therapy (CMIT), a 20,000 square foot, $19.5 million facility housing expanded radiopharmaceutical production operations, patient imaging services and a clinical and translational research program. The new CMIT is scheduled to open in 2021.
