GGC Partnership Campus website to market for future growth

Greenwood, SC, – The Greenwood Genetic Center (GGC) Foundation, a nonprofit 501c3 established to serve as the philanthropic arm supporting the mission
of the Greenwood Genetic Center, is proud to announce the launch of a new website highlighting their GGC Partnership Campus at http://partnershipcampus.com/.

The GGC Partnership Campus will serve as both an anchor of Greenwood’s emerging Medical Innovation District and as a vital, connected hub within the broader
Greenwood community. The campus will become the location of choice for companies and organizations seeking a quality-of-life environment with a focus
on promoting connections and collaboration.

The GGC Partnership Campus will provide a unique asset for the City of Greenwood while supporting GGC’s long-term goals for the delivery of clinical care,
diagnostic testing, research advances, and educational initiatives.

In addition to the Greenwood Genetic Center, the campus currently includes The Upper Savannah Council of Governments, Carolina Health Center’s Children’s
Center, and the Clemson Center for Human Genetics’ Self Regional Hall.

The Clemson Center for Human Genetics’ (CCHG) presence on the campus enables Clemson’s growing genetics
program to collaborate closely with the tradition of excellence in genetic services, testing, and research at GGC, combining basic science with clinical
care. Last year, CCHG named internationally acclaimed geneticist, Dr. Trudy Mackay, as Director of CCHG. Dr. Mackay is building a team of researchers
to advance the understanding of the fundamental principles by which genetic and environmental factors determine and predict both healthy traits and
susceptibility to disease in humans. Together, the CCHG and GGC will strive to use new technologies and knowledge to develop treatments for genetic
disorders.

The GGC Partnership Campus website features a streamlined modern design, improved functionality, and easy access to essential information to help individuals
and companies looking to locate on the GGC Partnership Campus. The new comprehensive website offers campus information, relocation assistance, a facilities
overview, news, and contact information.
