Kirksey was selected to design the first phase of laboratory and office space for Bellicum Pharmaceuticals, a publicly held cellular immunotherapy company headquartered in Houston, Texas. The space includes laboratory benches, fume hoods, island sinks, autoclave, freezer storage and support areas for tissue culture and microscopy, administrative offices, open work areas, a media room/library, large conference room, and a break room with seating. The laboratory was configured to provide employees and visitors with sweeping views of the Texas Medical Center. Kirksey was subsequently hired to design the next four phases of expansion as Bellicum grew, adding additional laboratory spaces, vivarium, conference center, and two CGMP clean room facilities housing additional labs, staff lockers, and support areas.
