The National Center for Therapeutics Manufacturing (NCTM) in College Station, Texas, is a first-in-class, flexible-by-design, workforce education, biopharmaceutical research and development facility. It houses a highly respected, multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional R&D team focused on solving the current national challenges in public health and biosecurity.
The 156,000 sq. ft. facility combines academic, research and development, and production activities under one roof, promoting educational and industrial collaboration. Areas for research and therapeutics manufacturing comply with FDA current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) while also being highly adaptable. This flexibility allows the Texas A&M University System to stay commercially competitive and to continually direct the facility to emerging research and manufacturing techniques.
NCTM provides one of the most interactive and realistic pharmaceutical manufacturing training environments anywhere in the country.
The NCTM program includes academic spaces – labs, classrooms, offices, meeting rooms – to help train next-generation research scientists in the field of therapeutics development and manufacturing. Particular emphasis was given to the spatial relationship of program areas, with the intent of encouraging interdisciplinary collaboration, teaching and communication.
