PEACHTREE CORNERS, GA – Transdermal research and development company, 4P Therapeutics, has opened its headquarters facility in the City of Peachtree Corners, bringing an initial 12 new jobs to the Gwinnett. The company expects to expand this space by year’s end.

“Our new facility in Gwinnett will allow us to continue to enhance our research efforts, expand the company, and take advantage of the resources available to growing life sciences companies in Georgia,” stated Steven Damon, 4P Therapeutics president and CEO. “With access to the region’s research support, top-rated universities and biotechnology infrastructure, we are well positioned to expand our capabilities and products.”

This privately held biotech firm focuses on R&D products using a broad range of drug delivery technologies, including novel transdermal methods. The experienced team at 4P Therapeutics has previously engaged in successful drug development partnerships with leading pharmaceutical companies such as Eli Lilly & Co., Novartis, Hospira, Elan and Amylin Pharmaceuticals.

“4P Therapeutics is a fantastic addition to Gwinnett’s strong and growing bioscience industry,” commented Gwinnett County Commission Chairman Charlotte Nash. “With direct access to the resources, opportunities, and support that help companies like 4P Therapeutics thrive, Gwinnett County is poised to remain a leader in life sciences.”

“On behalf of Peachtree Corners, I want to welcome 4P Therapeutics to our city. 4P Therapeutics joins a host of life science companies and further positions the community for sustained economic growth driven by research, development, and the commercialization of new products and technologies,” stated City of Peachtree Corners Mayor Mike Mason.

4P Therapeutics’ location positions the company within the region’s Innovation Crescent, both a geographic area and coalition of more than a dozen counties and economic development entities, all dedicated to supporting Georgia’s life science growth. A corridor spanning from Atlanta to Athens-Clarke County, the Innovation Crescent encompasses the resources of top research organizations in the Southeast contributing to life science exploration. A member of the Innovation Crescent, Gwinnett Chamber Economic Development strives to support and promote the growth of life science companies, such as 4P Therapeutics, within the Gwinnett and metro Atlanta community.

“4P Therapeutics is the type of thriving company we aim to attract, nurture and retain in Georgia’s vibrant Innovation Crescent and I am excited to welcome them to the region,” says Nick Masino, chair of Georgia’s Innovation Crescent and senior vice president of Gwinnett Chamber Economic Development and Partnership Gwinnett.
