CGT Catapult Edinburgh

Laboratories, offices and expert teams to support the development of robust cell therapy manufacturing processes and accelerated routes to the clinic.

CGT Catapult Edinburgh is a 350m2 high-specification laboratory equipped with manufacturing development and analytical technologies for cell therapies. Bridging the gap between our Technology and Process Innovation laboratories in London and our Stevenage Manufacturing Innovation Centre, our Edinburgh facility is uniquely positioned to support the maturation of your novel cell therapy manufacturing process.

We provide the resources and knowledge needed for you to progress your cell therapy through to clinical trials. Our Edinburgh team comprises of technical, GMP and clinical adoption experts from across the cell therapy life cycle, providing the workforce to assess and de-risk your process and advise on the regulatory requirements associated with bringing your therapy to market.

Based at the Edinburgh BioQuarter, in the University of Edinburgh’s Institute for Regeneration and Repair, our facility is strategically aligned with academic strength in stem cell research in the North of the UK and the strong CDMO and Pharmaservices offering in Scotland. Here, we continue to support research investment, networking, spin-out and building on the local cell and gene therapy cluster. We use our extensive network to facilitate connections between academic groups, early-stage therapy developers, NHS, CROs and CDMOs to further support an accelerated route to the clinic.

Making the cell and gene therapy industry accessible to all

Along with the high-specification manufacturing development labs, the facility also includes a 60m2 ‘Universal Design’ lab for scientists with physical disabilities, the UK’s first accessible laboratory specifically designed for cell and gene therapies. As a world-wide exemplar of an advanced therapies laboratory built to the principles of universal design, the facility aims to widen participation in the industry and increase opportunities for scientists to take up a career in cell and gene therapies irrespective of physical ability.
