A new Cell and Gene Therapy Bioprocessing MBI® course will address the real-world challenges of translating discoveries to the clinic.

Cell and Gene Therapy is fast becoming an established field that aims to utilise the power of cell-based medicines to deliver new therapies for the 21st Century. However, translating the discovery science into manufacturable products has so far been challenging, and so multi-disciplinary engineers who possess unique skills are urgently needed to address the manufacture of these complex medicinal products.

The new Cell and Gene Therapy Bioprocessing MBI® course running at UCL from 9-11th July will address the real-world challenges of translating discoveries to the clinic in a way that is commercially viable. A series of lectures and interactive case studies will enable you to:

  • Understand the distinctions of manufacturing cells compared with biologics
  • Understand the challenges faced in advancing cell therapies to clinic and the lessons learned from established companies
  • Understand the impact of design and engineering considerations on advanced therapy manufacture
  • Identify and define critical process parameters for different advanced therapy applications
  • Gain knowledge and application of analytical toolset for quality measurement
