Biopharmaceuticals: C&GT and ATMP

Biopharmaceuticals: C&GT and ATMP Training Course (T68) New Course!


This new instructor lead course is an advanced level course on Cell and Gene Therapies C&GT and Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products (ATMP). The course provides an overview of the most common and established components that are leveraged in C&GT products (e.g. plasmids, mRNA, lipid nanoparticles, viral vectors), covering terminology, manufacturing processes and subsequent analytical characterization of the manufactured components and therapeutic products. The adeno-associated virus (AAV) and chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell platforms are presented as the two most common and established therapeutic technologies for Gene Therapy and Cell Therapy, respectively. The purpose of this course it to provide a fundamental understanding of the CMC considerations for C&GT products.
