Compugen Announces Planned Relocation of Headquarters to Larger Facilities
News Mar 25, 2015
Compugen Ltd. has announced the planned relocation by year-end of its Tel-Aviv headquarters, along with its Israeli research and discovery operations, to substantially larger facilities.
The new facilities, now being prepared according to Compugen’s specifications, will support the ongoing growth of the Company and the further advancement of its novel immune checkpoint programs for cancer immunotherapy. The new facilities will be located in the Azrieli Holon Business Center about 12 miles south of Compugen’s current location and will double the available space for the Company’s corporate offices and labs.
This planned expansion follows last year’s relocation of the Company’s wholly-owned US subsidiary, which is focused on the development of antibody therapeutics against the Company’s novel drug targets, to a larger facility in South San Francisco.
Dr. Cohen-Dayag, President and CEO of Compugen, stated, “These larger and enhanced facilities in both Israel and the US are essential for us as we continue to advance a number of our early-stage immuno-oncology novel therapeutic programs, while, at the same time, continuing to enhance and extend our unique, broadly applicable, predictive discovery infrastructure.”
