Our 165-acre campus is located within close proximity to the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center and the Penn State College of Medicine, which are both excellent research institutions with whom our tenants enjoy strong working relationships.

No other biotechnology research park in the region enjoys a more advantageous location than HCAR.

HCAR gives businesses unique access to the best research resources and laboratory rentals in the region.
