The University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus has always thought big.

In the past decade, the enterprise has become a medical city of scientific advancement, top-notch healthcare education and premier clinical care. Now with the opening of the Gates Biomanufacturing Facility (GBF), which will accelerate scientific discovery from the laboratory to human therapies, the campus enters the elite tier of academic medical centers.

Patrick Gaines, executive director of the Gates Center for Regenerative Medicine, said the GBF is a “game-changer” for not only the Gates Center and the Anschutz Medical Campus as a whole, but for Colorado and beyond. “We want to develop patient treatments faster,” Gaines said. “This facility now allows us to take ideas and fully develop them through to patient delivery.”
