'Open Lab' Brings New Partners to Knowledge Park

Sometimes 1 mile can be 1 mile too far.

It was only 1 mile that separated Cybersonics Inc. from Penn State Behrend in 2009, but according to Jeff Vaitekunas, vice president of research and development at Cybersonics, being located across the highway from the University just wasn’t cutting it.

“I looked across that street, and when I saw those buildings I knew there was a great opportunity,” he said.
