Pharma Major Lupin Limited (Lupin) on Friday announced the opening of its Center of Excellence for Inhalation Research in Coral Springs. Florida Lieutenant Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera, Florida Department of Economic Opportunity Director Jesse Panuccio, Mayor Skip Campbell and other leaders participated in the ribbon cutting ceremony.
Lupin’s new facility will focus on the research and development of inhalation products for the treatment of asthma, allergic rhinitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases and other lung diseases and will bring 45 high-skilled jobs to Broward County, according to the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance.
Lupin’s South Florida expansion spotlights the steady growth of Florida’s life sciences industry, said Florida Lt. Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera. “The opening of this facility is a testament to the strength of Florida’s life sciences industry and the diverse and talented workforce who call this state home. We welcome Lupin to the Sunshine State and look forward to the incredible research and therapies that are developed as a result of their presence in Florida.”
Enterprise Florida, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, CareerSource Florida, Broward County and the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance collaborated to bring Lupin to Coral Springs.
“We are delighted to be making our mark in South Florida,” said Lupin CEO Vinita Gupta. “The new inhalation research and development facility is a significant step forward in our journey to emerge as a global specialty pharmaceutical player.”
