REDWOOD CITY, Calif. and RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., — July 28, 2021 — Kriya Therapeutics, Inc., a fully integrated platform company pioneering novel technologies and therapeutics in gene therapy, today announced the completion of the renovation of its 51,000 square foot facility located in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina to support cGMP production of its expanding pipeline of gene therapies.
“At Kriya we are focused on building fully integrated capabilities to support the design, development and manufacturing of gene therapies to address a range of rare and prevalent diseases,” said Shankar Ramaswamy, M.D., Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Kriya. “With our state-of-the-art facility in Research Triangle Park, we are uniquely positioned to advance our proprietary manufacturing platform to deliver the highest quality of gene therapies at scale, from early research through commercialization.”
The facility will support the advancement of STRIPE™, Kriya’s proprietary high-efficiency manufacturing platform integrating advances in cell line technology and upstream and downstream process to achieve exponential reductions in production costs at scale. The facility includes capabilities to support vial-to-vial production of gene therapies – with in-house process development and analytical development labs, quality control testing, pilot production, fill/finish and multiple cGMP suites with the capacity to support the simultaneous production of material across products at up to 3,000L scale.
“It is remarkable that the Kriya team has been able to complete the renovation of this facility to support cGMP production of gene therapies since first taking occupancy of the building almost exactly one year ago.
