October 22, 2021 -- I-Mab is establishing a new site in San Diego that will focus on translational medicine and formulation research, the company announced.
The company touted the planned site as being a state-of-the-art facility that will integrate laboratory and office space to strengthen development capabilities. The aim is to reinforce I-Mab's ability to conduct global clinical studies across China and the U.S. The company did not indicate when the site would be operational.
