CASSS Meetings

Cell & Gene Therapy Products 2019 

Adam Grabarek, Universiteit Leiden, Netherlands
Detection and quantification of particulate impurities in cell-based medicinal products by using fluid imaging microscopy and deep learning for image analysis


 

"Thanks to CASSS I had the unique opportunity to attend the 2nd meeting on Cell and Gene Therapy Products in Bethesda, USA. The meeting was of exceptionally high quality with top class speakers and industry experts, which gave me the chance to learn about the most significant advancements in the field. Having discussions and exchanging ideas with fellow scientists led to introducing new ideas into my project on cell based therapy products, which will certainly benefit the research conducted in our labs. Finally, the meeting provided unique networking opportunities and I am grateful to CASSS for their support and would recommend to all other researchers to apply for the travel grant."

 



Yazmin Rovira Gonzalez, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine

"I am truly grateful to the CASSS committee for providing me the opportunity to partake in the 2nd annual meeting of Cell and Gene Therapy Products (CGTP): Manufacturing, Quality and Regulatory Considerations. I was able to network with regulators and industry professionals from across the world during the multiple networking breaks that were incorporated in the conference’s program. The panel discussions at the end of every session allowed for open dialogues between regulators and companies on complex topics regarding AAV gene therapy products and ways to analyze variance in autologous cell therapy process development. The positive experiences and valuable interactions I had were only possible thanks to this award so I encourage young scientists to submit a CASSS student travel grant application."

"Presenting my work at WCBP was a truly special opportunity to get feedback from regulators and industry professionals. I had great conversations with a wide cross-section of scientists from around the world. I could see that my research was quite different from the majority of other presenters, yet I was welcomed warmly and heartily encouraged by all my interactions with CASSS members and administrators. Just as impactfulwere the numerous side meetings I organized with members around DC and at the FDA. Those meetings hinged on the participation of WCBP's unique collection of attendees. The generosity of this grant made all these valuable interactions possible and for that, I am very grateful!"
