Rise Therapeutics Receives Wet Lab Buildout Grant from Montgomery County Economic Development Corporation

Rockville, MD. Rise Therapeutics today announced that the Montgomery County Economic Development Corporation (MCEDC) Fund’s Bio Lab Pilot Project issued Rise Therapeutics funding to support its clinical GMP manufacturing infrastructure build out. This grant supports a key corporative initiative for Rise Therapeutics to expand its product development infrastructure in the microbiome space to include capabilities that enable the organization to more efficiently and cost effectively transition cutting-edge microbiome discoveries into clinically validated drug products. This MCEDC funding program supports $10 per square foot of lab fit out costs to build out wet lab space up to 5,000 square feet.

“Most small life sciences entrepreneurs are looking for this type of infrastructure assistance as they advance product development capabilities of their drug development companies,” said Dr. Gary Fanger, President and CEO of Rise Therapeutics. “Compared to other parts of the country, Montgomery County continues to provide a strong support system for emerging life science companies. Local programs like the Bio Lab Pilot Project Program are a unique component of our county’s vibrant biohealth cluster.”

Rise Therapeutics will have space dedicated to clinical GMP manufacturing and GMP analytical testing. The facility will enable Rise to transition first-in-class microbiome-associated products through clinical proof-of-concept studies to support its own products and products of its partners. Rise Therapeutics utilizes a Flexible Clean Space ManufacturingTM configuration for better manufacturing efficiency and reduced production cost. The infrastructure can be used to manufacture GMP master cell banks, drug substance, or drug product. In addition, the facility is sufficiently equipped to support analytical testing used for GMP product release and long-term stability assessment.
