Rockville biotech firm to expand with new lab space in Gaithersburg

Rockville-based Shuttle Pharmaceuticals will expand its footprint within Montgomery County this summer. The company announced yesterday that it is leasing additional laboratory and office space at an unspecified property in Gaithersburg. Shuttle Pharmaceuticals was founded by faculty members of Georgetown University Medical Center in 2012, and specializes in improving radiation therapy treatments for cancer, while attempting to reduce their side effects. Among the therapies in development at Shuttle is Ropidoxuridine, its lead clinical sensitizer drug candidate.

  1. Health and pharmaceutical business decides to be close to HHS agencies headquartered in MoCo like SAMHSA, Indian Health Service, NIH, FDA, AHRQ, HRSA, and industry like the Human Genome Project and US Pharmacopeia. How very moribund of our local economy that pharmaceutical companies are expanding operations here instead of in NoVA.
