Imvax is a Philadelphia-based biotechnology company developing vaccines and techniques to combat previously untreatable forms of cancer. The firm moved its headquarters and primary research and development (R&D) lab to the historic Curtis Center in Old City, Philadelphia. This building once housed printing equipment used to produce magazines; one publication was The Saturday Evening Post that began weekly circulation in 1897.

The team worked with the designers to achieve Imvax’s vision by collaborating with the building’s engineering department, the landlord, existing tenants, and the Historical Commission.Read the whole story
