ATMP Manufacturing

ATMP Manufacturing Training Course (T64)


This course is focused on the commercial manufacture of Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products (ATMPs) drug products in manufacturing facilities. The purpose of this course is to focus on facility engineering issues and how to provide cost-effective facilities to ensure that products of the highest quality are consistently manufactured, as defined in the new Good Practice Guide. This course stays at the facility level and establishes guiding principles from the GPG that should be considered during these emerging and rapidly evolving times. This course is written from the perspective of an allogeneic or autologous cellular therapy or gene-modified cellular therapy
