In the quest to bring cell and gene therapies to the fore, players of all sizes are clamoring for capacity, innovation and standardization. Making advanced therapies at scale is one of the biggest hurdles, with a shortage of viral vectors—the engineered viruses used to deliver gene therapies and CAR-Ts—already upon us. Now, as a wave of potential approvals threaten to crowd the bottleneck even more, the industry will need to pull out all the production stops to meet demand. Join us as we discuss the latest tactics to avoid process pitfalls in the field, from the upsized role of contract manufacturing to automation, flexible production and more.
