Event details:

In order to adopt these medicines into standard healthcare, there needs to be consideration of the differences to pharmaceuticals and biologics and the significantly more complicated supply chain that they require. This includes challenges around shelf-life of therapies, manufacturing close to treatment, feasibility of large batches and reducing costs, to name but a few.

Our BioWednesday will look at the manufacturing challenges that we need to tackle in order to deliver advanced therapies to patients. It will feature examples of excellence that are helping to scale-up manufacturing  and ultimately help to implement these therapies in the long term for greater numbers of patients.
