Cincinnati Children’s Begins Construction on Applied Gene and Cell Therapy Center

Published 6/13/2024

Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center began construction in June of 2024 on the Applied Gene and Cell Therapy Center in Sharonville, Ohio. The $60 million project will transform an existing structure into a catalyst for innovative clinical trials. Designed by BHDP Architecture, the 111,000-sf facility will advance the development, testing, and manufacture of new medicines and biological therapies. Specialized production suites serviced by robust infrastructure will create next-generation treatments for cancer, blood diseases, and genetic conditions.

Building on the research efforts of the Cincinnati Children’s Translational Core Laboratory, the building will house approximately 100 employees, including investigators, technicians, quality control experts, and support staff. Additionally, a section of the development will serve as a supply chain hub for the institution’s three hospital campuses and numerous satellite locations. Danis Construction is the design-builder for the project, which is slated for occupancy in late 2025.
