We look forward to meeting you!

Watch the first edition of our webinar series as we discuss the journey of how Novartis GBTC has evolved into a Global Contract Manufacturing Organization over the last 40 years.

The facility will focus on Lenti and Adenoviral vectors, mainly for the contract manufacturing business. The new plant will be located at our Mengeš site in Slovenia and will become operational in early 2024. With this investment, we are addressing the worldwide growth in cell & gene therapies and increasing demand for capacity, driven by the global cell & gene therapy pipeline.
