Introduction to Cell Therapy


This introductory 2.5 day course in NIBRT will provide an overview of the different classes of cell and cell-based therapies including Mesenchymal Stem/Stromal Cell Therapies, Pluripotent Stem Cell Therapies, CART-T Cell Therapies, CAR-NK Cell Therapies, as well as other types of Cellular Immunotherapy.  

In addition to the theoretical content concerning biology, mechanism of action, manufacturing methods, and quality control for these therapies, much time will be given to hands-on practice of techniques and operation of equipment used to produce these therapies commercially.  This hands-on practical training will use state-of-the-art automated systems to showcase the current and potential future manufacturing techniques available.

Key topics covered

  • Define the differences between autologous and allogeneic therapies.
  • Identify various cell types used in cell therapy, such as stem cells, immune cells, and progenitor cells.
  • Explain the sources of cells for therapy, including embryonic, adult, and induced pluripotent stem cells.
  • Outline the processes involved in isolating, expanding, and culturing cells for therapeutic purposes.
  • Explain the basic principles of chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) design and function.
