Who we are

The Cell Therapy Catapult was established in 2012 as a centre of excellence in innovation, with the core purpose of building a world-leading cell therapy industry in the UK. Supported by the Technology Strategy Board, our mission is to drive the growth of the industry by helping cell therapy organisations across the world translate early stage research into commercially viable and investable therapies.

At the heart of our organisation lie the five core pillars that represent who we are and what we set out to achieve.

  • We are committed to growing and sharing our experience and expertise to lead the transformation of the cell therapy industry.
  • We are dedicated to helping the industry deliver life changing cell therapies to patients.
  • We will collaborate to increase efficiency and produce the best possible outcomes to help drive growth.
  • We will make risk more manageable through demonstration of success, collaboration and new technologies that deliver advantages across the industry.
  • We will lead the UK cell therapy industry to create health and wealth from the UK’s outstanding science foundation and make the UK the most compelling and logical choice for our international partners.

The Catapult programme

The Cell Therapy Catapult is part of a family of Catapults which are not-for profit, independent centres which connect businesses with the UK’s research and academic communities.

Each Catapult specialises in a different area of technology but they all offer innovative facilities and expertise to enable businesses and researchers to collaboratively solve key problems and develop new products and services on a commercial scale.
