Telangana government has decided to set up the country’s first biopharma-Hub to provide support to the biopharma research and development activities.
This will feature a scaleup manufacturing facility and a turnkey incubator/ lab space module.
According to the government, the proposed facility, spread across 40,000 square feet, would come up at Hyderabad’s Genome Valley, which currently houses over 200 biopharma firms including few top global vaccine makers, at an outlay of Rs 60 crore in public private partnership.
A government statement said companies that are in early stage clinical development but lack the requisite expertise and resources to navigate the complexities associated with business planning, cell line development, process development, technology, and/or regulatory and risk assessment, can leverage B-Hub facility to help breakdown roadblocks and improve likelihood of commercial success.
