The cell therapy company TCR2 Therapeutics is opening a new manufacturing facility in Montgomery County.

The location, hosted at the Shady Grove Life Sciences Center, will bring 175 new jobs to Rockville over the next three years.

“After observing the consistent early clinical benefit and manageable safety profile experienced by patients treated with gavo-cel, we committed to securing a dedicated U.S. manufacturing facility as the first step in building a regional network to supply cancer patients with our therapies,” said Garry Menzel, Ph.D., president and CEO of TCR2 Therapeutics.
