Cell and Gene Therapy Products: Manufacturing, Quality and Regulatory Considerations

The Cell and Gene Therapy Products Symposium: Manufacturing, Quality and Regulatory Considerations enables the exchange of scientific ideas and dialogue with regulators that form the basis of evolving regulatory practices in the development of these diverse and innovative products. The 2023 Symposium will explore how to continue to adapt concepts applied to other biologics and how to establish novel approaches where they are needed. Dual tracks and expanded roundtable sessions will offer additional content and opportunities to engage in meaningful discussions. The Symposium will be offered in-person as well as live streamed to a virtual audience.

New for 2023:

  • Introducing the CGTP Summit – a one-day program dedicated to deep-dive discussions on the topic of comparability.
  • Dual tracks with additional sessions to include more content.
  • Expanded roundtable discussions to include two sessions.
