Janssen expands collaboration with Rutgers with 6M in funding

Janssen Supply Chain has augmented its strategic partnership with the Rutgers University School of Engineering by providing more than $6 million. The money will go towards expanding research efforts that support the company’s search for pharmaceutical manufacturing techniques.Mauricio Futran, vice president of advanced technology, Janssen Manufacturing and Technical Operations, said in a news release that the relationship between the Johnson & Johnson subsidiary and the institution has been mutually beneficial.

“Our collaboration with the Rutgers Engineering School has been very productive in helping us to prepare for the future in delivering the highest-quality medicines in the most efficient way,” he said. “We look forward to continuing to work closely with Rutgers and with regulators on the advancement and implementation of this important manufacturing technology.”

The Rutgers Engineering Research Center, which was established nine years ago, is the world’s largest academic-based research organization focused on the modernization of pharmaceutical manufacturing of solid, oral-dose medications. It also offers cutting edge research capabilities and strong relationships with the FDA.

“The center is helping manufacturers meet new regulatory requirements by using good science and state-of-the-art research to promote and maintain high standards of product safety and efficacy,” said Fernando Muzzio, director of the Engineering Research Center. “Our ongoing collaboration with Janssen allows us to continue to increase product quality and lower process risk and provide science-based data to the FDA and other regulatory agencies to improve the way pharmaceuticals products are manufactured.”
