Cenix Moves Operations to New BioInnovation Center

NEW YORK, May 20 (GenomeWeb News) - Cenix Bioscience announced this week that it has moved operations into new facilities located within Dresden's BioInnovationCenter.


The company formerly was headquartered within the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics, one of Cenix's parent institutes.


The new location, said Cenix, includes more than 800 square meters of space where its expanding RNA-related research services may be conducted.


"The opportunity to grow up and mature as a company within the MPI-CBG has been an exceptional privilege and a true joy, for which we at Cenix are very thankful," Cenix CEO and CSO Christophe Echeverri said in a statement. "The new location is only two blocks away from MPI-CBG, so we look forward to maintaining our existing tight contacts there and also adding an important new dimension to the growing life science research landscape in Dresden."
