Hemogenyx Opens R&D Facility in Manhattanville Factory District 

Hemogenyx Pharmaceuticals has opened its new custom-engineered R&D facility at Janus Property Company’s Mink Building in West Harlem’s Manhattanville Factory District, adjacent to Columbia University and City College. The company’s research facility includes approximately 10,000 square feet of purpose-built lab space including two clean rooms for cell therapy manufacturing.  

Along with continuing and expanding its research, Hemogenyx, which is traded on the London Stock Exchange, can now manufacture cells in-house, accelerating and simplifying the commercialization of its major cell therapy product candidates. The company will use its clean rooms to produce its HEMO-CAR-T cell therapy for treating acute myeloid leukemia. 

“It is exciting each time a new tenant opens here,” said Janus principal Scott Meztner. “With Hemogenyx Pharmaceuticals beginning work in such a highly specialized lab that required two clean rooms, the Manhattanville Factory District continues to deliver on its masterplan of becoming New York’s premier life science ecosystem.”
