The Cell & Gene Therapy industry is a rapidly growing area of medicine. However, although both cell and gene therapies offer a regenerative approach to treat disease, their modes of action and individual manufacturing techniques are largely different from one another.
Over 6 sessions, this course will take you on a deep dive into the different product types that exist under the Cell & Gene Therapy umbrella, then compare key manufacturing principles. You will consider aspects such as viral vector vs. non-viral vector genetic manipulation methods in gene and gene-modified cell therapies, EU & US expectations when working with cells, and the importance of cryogenics to safeguard and transport your product to the patient.

What will you learn?
Familiarise yourself with the different types of products which exist in the Cell & Gene Therapy Industry, including: induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), CAR T and haematopoietic stem cells
Take a deep dive into the manufacturing fundamentals of the different types of products that exist and understand where similarities and differences arise
Consider the influence of patient location and transportation on manufacturing a Cell or Gene Therapy product
Understand the importance of developing an effective freeze/thaw protocol and appreciate how getting this process wrong can sabotage your whole product
Consolidate the knowledge you have learned by looking at two industry case studies looking at manufacturing haematopoietic stem cells and lentiviral vectors for Beta Thalassaemia, as well as looking at CAR T manufacture
