The Biopharma Division also announced that it has initiated the qualification and validation process for the BioCentriq facility and its equipment. This Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) facility is located at NJIT’s Life Sciences and Engineering center and features two GMP suites. The GMP suites are expected to complete their qualification and validation and be operational this summer. BioCentriq also offers a process development center, currently located at the Rutgers Medical School in Newark, which has been open and actively supporting projects since late 2019.
“BioCentriq will help bring innovative and novel therapies to clinical trials, providing a venue for established companies and start-ups alike. It is also a unique training ground for the workforce of the future,“ stated Dr. Haro Hartounian, SVP and General Manager of Biopharma at NJII. “We are grateful to all our partners who have supported us financially and with in-kind donations of equipment and supplies, as well as the industry leaders who serve on our advisory board and lend us their expertise.”
