The Center for Breakthrough Medicines (CBM) is on track to be the largest single-site cell and gene therapy-focused contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO) in the world. CBM’s mission is to accelerate the delivery and affordability of lifesaving therapies by offering a fully integrated solution for the development and commercialization of cell and gene therapies.
CBM is located just outside of Philadelphia in the Heart of Cellicon Valley; set on 300 acres with 2.4 million square feet of life sciences lab and manufacturing space, allowing clients to scale their development and manufacturing needs without ever having to change sites, while providing employees a true community campus experience focused exclusively on life sciences.
