Advanced therapy medicinal products (ATMPs) are currently undergoing a boom. Several products including viral, non-viral and cell-based products have forged a path to market. In their wake, academics and clinicians continue to lead innovation and unlock the clinical potential of new approaches and technologies, whereas increased industry interest is stimulating investment and industrialization of the processes that lead to commercialization.
This online training course is designed to give a broad scientific and regulatory overview of the current state of the art and challenges facing ATMP development. It will follow the life cycle of an ATMP from concept to clinic and commercialization. and it will take into consideration global regulatory requirements and the often-challenging regulatory problems that ATMPs face.
