Advanced Manufacturing in Cell and Gene Therapies

The Alliance for Regenerative Medicine will hold a 1.5-day workshop on Advanced Manufacturing in CGT on May 16-17, 2024, in the Rockville, MD area. This workshop will discuss opportunities and challenges in emerging technologies and innovations in CGT manufacturing, including advances in manufacturing / analytics automation, role of AI/ML in CGT manufacturing, and decentralized manufacturing.

About This Workshop

As the Cell and Gene Therapy field progresses and the number of product approvals continues to grow, there is a rising demand to accommodate higher volume production and increased capacity to deliver these therapies to more patients. ARM’s Advanced Manufacturing in CGT workshop will explore the successes, challenges, and opportunities in developing and implementing advanced manufacturing technologies to meet this demand.
The workshop will consist of formal presentations and panel discussions that will provide opportunities for attendees to ask speakers questions and dig deeper into the presented content.
