Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Inaugural

Cell and Gene Therapy Analytics

A Best Practices Exchange for Essential Assays and Product and Process Quality Strategies

May 7-8, 2020


A vast number of mainstream and emerging biotechs are now engaged in the discovery and development of cell and gene therapies, but significant advances in analytical and process technologies are required to support preclinical and clinical development, quality control strategies and progression through the regulatory steps needed to reach the market. The PEGS Cell and Gene Therapy Analytics conference offers an all case study format in which leading scientists will share their experiences with new tools, lessons and learnings – and what works and doesn’t work to move efficiently in this explosive new field of pharmaceutical science.
