Cell and Gene Therapy Manufacturing Bootcamp - Summer 2023

The Cell and Gene Therapy Manufacturing Bootcamp is an intensive 5-day, in-person, hands-on training experience in which you will be introduced to the fundamental processes and techniques used in cell and gene therapy manufacturing. In a laboratory setting, you will gain the knowledge and skills required to work in cell and gene therapy by using a human Jurkat T cell model for adoptive cell therapy and an AAV2-GFP model and Baculovirus platform for gene therapy. You will be exposed to the entire end-to-end manufacturing workflow including upstream and downstream processes, gene vector production, cell culture expansion, quality control, cold-chain solutions, and you will gain vital hands-on training with industry standard equipment used in manufacturing for clinical trials and for FDA-approved therapies. You will also learn proper aseptic techniques, GMP cleanroom gowning and execution of standard operating procedures (SOP), as well as cover topics related to analytical techniques that are used to assess quality and meet GMP regulatory standards and requirements.  

In this capstone experience, you will gain exposure to careers in biomanufacturing from industry professionals and introduction to other professional opportunities within the cell and gene therapy industry. 

Learning Outcomes 

  • Apply detailed theoretical process knowledge to upstream, cell expansion, and downstream applications  
  • Comply to GMP and regulatory standards for performing SOP and QC release
