Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 4th Annual

Gene Therapy Manufacturing

Production Strategies for Vector-Based Gene Therapies

August 15-16, 2019

It is an exciting time for gene therapy – therapies on the market, strong investment and encouraging clinical data – but manufacturing still represents one of the major stumbling blocks to successful commercialization.

Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Gene Therapy Manufacturing conference takes a practical, case-study driven approach to the process development, scale-up and production of gene therapies, tackling key topics such as AAV, lentivirus and retrovirus process development and scale-up, CMO management from early to late-stage development.
