The Advanced Technology Partnerships Initiative centers on a unique R&D collaboration concept, where Frederick National Lab facilities, space, and expertise are available for cooperative R&D projects with academia, government, and life sciences industry partners to accelerate cancer and AIDS translational research.
The Advanced Technology Research Facility (ATRF) is a new, 330,000 square foot translational
R&D facility located in Frederick, MD, consisting of advanced technology
laboratories, biopharmaceutical development, and cGMP production facilities. The
facility is designed to foster co-located partnership projects, with dedicated laboratory
and “think tank” space for collaborative work with partners across a continuum of
translational R&D technologies and platforms, including genomics, proteomics,
nanotechnology, molecular diagnostics, bioinformatics, and biopharmaceutical development,
The ATRF is the anchor facility of the National Cancer Institute at Riverside Research Park (RRP).
RRP is a premier biomedical research campus in Frederick, MD, which is growing through
location of companies and organizations with complementary and synergistic technologies,
products, services, and capabilities that are important to creating the next generation
of therapies for cancer and AIDS.
