About

This Manufacture and Commercialisation of Stem Cell and Gene Therapies programme from University College London  is aimed at enabling, enhancing and empowering two types of complementary future leaders.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

This one-year, full-time Manufacture and Commercialisation of Stem Cell and Gene Therapies programme from University College London will involve a combination of both biological and lab-based bioprocessing studies in conjunction with core research-based educational content covering a range of novel therapeutic modalities and the translation of these advanced therapies from the laboratory to the market.

Through close industry partner involvement in the development and delivery of this programme, you will be introduced to real-life case studies of novel therapeutic manufacture. In addition to being taught by UCL academics who will draw upon extensive industrial research collaborations, you will receive lectures from industry experts and guest speakers to provide you with the industrial relevance and the wider commercial context. You will, therefore, benefit greatly from the academic expertise and real-world commercial and clinical insights which will be brought together through this holistic educational approach.
