Cell & Gene Therapy Development & Manufacturing


The Biopharma Division at NJII was established to help our partners in the industry overcome challenges they face as they develop the next wave of cell and gene therapies.

We have a multi-million dollar, state-of-the-art Cell and Gene Therapy Development Center name BioCentriq which is used for flexible process development and clinical manufacturing.

We are designed to help you move from bench to scale. Our goal is to help you scale your production capabilities and advance your products from the lab to the clinic.

Our mission is to support industry-wide advancement, so we also focus on workforce development and the incubation of promising start-ups.
