Pfizer Invests $68.5 Million in New Pharma R&D Facility

New York, NY — (SBWIRE) — 02/24/2022 — Gene therapy is a vital field and one generating a wealth of R&D jobs in pharma today. Companies such as Pfizer are keen to capitalize on progress, as this represents the next phase of innovation for patients currently living day-to-day with rare diseases. In order to push forward its progress in gene therapy, Pfizer has now announced the opening of a new clinical manufacturing facility in Durham, NC. It is part of an $800 million investment that the business is making over six years to build three facilities that will support gene therapy research, development and manufacturing at Pfizer. Currently, Pfizer has three late-stage clinical programs for hemophilia A, hemophilia B, and Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and 12 pre-clinical programs. The new Durham facility will be a key part of the research and development capacity that Pfizer has worldwide, providing another 85,000 square feet of space for progress and innovation.
