The Knight Campus kicked off a year of celebrations last month with a virtual grand opening of the 170,000 square-foot building. The campus features best-in-class labs and instructional facilities, as well as an innovation center to support efforts to move discoveries into the marketplace, where they can help improve quality of life.
