The living nature of ATMPs make them very different from traditional pharmaceutical medicines and they bring new, complex challenges in terms of storage, handling and maintaining a chain of custody from raw material to the patient.

Learning outcomes:

  • Gain an appreciation of the clinical trials pipeline for ATMPs
  • Develop an understanding of the facilities and technologies used to create ATMP medicines
  • Learn how the lessons from gene therapy and viral vector production have been applied to vaccines
  • Develop an understanding of the differences between point of care and centralized manufacturing – and implications on delivery to the patient
  • Develop an understanding of sources of risk in delivering cell products to the clinic
