Ribbon cutting ceremony for Thermo Fisher's new cell therapy manufacturing site in San Francisco

Ther­mo Fish­er moves on cam­pus with new cell man­u­fac­tur­ing site in San Fran­cis­co

Ther­mo Fish­er Sci­en­tif­ic is putting down more roots in the Bay Area.

The man­u­fac­tur­er opened the doors to a new cell ther­a­py man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­i­ty next to the Uni­ver­si­ty of Cal­i­for­nia-San Fran­cis­co Med­ical Cen­ter’s Mis­sion Bay cam­pus and on the uni­ver­si­ty’s cam­pus.

UCSF and Ther­mo Fish­er have had a part­ner­ship since 2021, with the new site fo­cus­ing on man­u­fac­tur­ing cell ther­a­peu­tics for cer­tain can­cers, in­clud­ing glioblas­toma and mul­ti­ple myelo­ma. The new site plans to use Ther­mo Fish­er’s ex­per­tise in man­u­fac­tur­ing ser­vices to help UCSF ac­cel­er­ate the de­vel­op­ment of cell ther­a­pies and even­tu­al­ly get them in­to the clin­ic, said Dan Her­ring, the gen­er­al man­ag­er of cell ther­a­py ser­vices at Ther­mo Fish­er, in an in­ter­view with End­points News.
