CAR-T Therapy: Working with a Manufacturing Partner

Broadcast Date: 
  • Time: 

The highly complex logistics of autologous and allogeneic CAR-T cell therapies coupled with the characteristics of the biological blueprint of donor and patient sourced material, necessitate consideration of numerous critical factors when it comes to scaling manufacturing and working with a suitable manufacturing partner. Much effort is underway across manufacturing partners to improve the processes, scale, timelines, and production pipelines for CAR-T therapies. Nevertheless, there remain many difficult challenges in scaling up autologous and allogenic CAR-T cell manufacturing and characterizing the function and potency of CAR-T cell products.

In this roundtable—CAR-T Therapy: Working with a Manufacturing Partner—hear from four distinguished experts as they critically weigh the benefits of working with a manufacturing partner. This roundtable, sponsored by Catalent, is a must-see for early and late-stage cell therapy innovator companies who are considering a manufacturing partnership.

Attendees will be able to gain insight into:

  • Key consideration points for selecting a process development and manufacturing partner
  • How manufacturing complexities shift as therapies move to late-stage
  • Working with an integrated partner across the value chain from raw materials to commercial supply
