BioN­Tech to ex­pand pres­ence in Is­rael with man­u­fac­tur­ing and re­search site

mR­NA play­er BioN­Tech has an­nounced plans to set up a new lab and man­u­fac­tur­ing space in Is­rael, as it forms a part­ner­ship with the Weiz­mann In­sti­tute of Sci­ence.

The biotech is es­tab­lish­ing an “mR­NA Ex­cel­lence Cen­ter” at Weiz­mann Sci­ence Park in Ness Ziona, where it’ll work with Weiz­mann In­sti­tute sci­en­tists in a range of dis­eases, from can­cer to in­fec­tious to neu­rode­gen­er­a­tive dis­eases. In ad­di­tion, BioN­Tech said on Wednes­day that it will build an mR­NA man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­i­ty based on its BioN­Tain­ers, which are con­tain­er-sized mod­u­lar units equipped to pump out mR­NA-based vac­cines and ther­a­pies.
