Plasmid DNA was key to the development of biologic drug manufacturing. Today, it plays a critical role in the production of next-generation cell and gene therapies and vaccines. With its plasmid DNA manufacturing expertise, Aldevron has helped facilitate the advance of these important therapeutics. The company continues to invest in additional capacity and novel capabilities to support biopharma manufacturers into the future.
Aldevron, a global leader in the manufacture of plasmid DNA, mRNA and proteins, has promoted Venkata Indurthi to Vice President of Research and Development (R&D). He will begin this new role immediately and continue reporting to John Ballantyne, Co-founder and Chief Scientific Officer while having direct access to Aldevron’s senior executive team.
