Join senior leaders in cell and gene therapy, gene editing and tissue engineering for the sector's premier conference and hear from leading industry experts involved in panels ranging from next-generation platform technologies to the benefits of early patient engagement in cell and gene therapy development.

Speaking from Cell and Gene Therapy Catapult:

October 10, 11:15am – 12:15pm | Ecolab Life Sciences Ballroom

iPSC-derived therapies are heralded as the panacea for allogeneic therapies and have the potential to provide scalability, economy and access to patients around the globe. However, many hurdles remain around manufacturing, regulations and market access. This session will discuss approaches and next steps towards commercialization of PSC-based therapies, including manufacturing innovations for scale, product characterization, as well as regulatory perspectives around starting materials.
