City of Hope Biological & Cellular GMP Manufacturing Facility – David Hsu (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Joseph Gold (email@example.com)
The Center for Biomedicine & Genetics (CBG) is a California-licensed, 20, 000 square foot, multi-product biologics manufacturing facility. With twelve ISO 7 production rooms in three product type “zones”, a dedicated aseptic fill suite and a staff with extensive biopharmaceutical experience, the CBG is capable of producing virtually any type of biologic at scales suitable for Phase I through Phase II clinical trials. The Cellular Therapies Production Center (CTPC) is a 6,800 square foot cell therapy manufacturing facility comprising six ISO 7 production rooms. The CTPC supports the production of manipulated autologous and allogeneic cell therapies.
