March 13, 2019 [Philadelphia, PA]Cellectis, a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company that harnesses the immune system to target and eradicate cancer cells, has announced that it has entered into a lease agreement for an 82,000 square foot commercial-scale manufacturing facility named IMPACT (Innovative Manufacturing Plant for Allogeneic Cellular Therapies) in Raleigh, North Carolina, for clinical and commercial production of Cellectis’ leading allogeneic UCART products.  

The facility, located at 2500 – 2540 Sumner Boulevard in Raleigh, NC is owned and managed by Equus Capital Partners.
