Join the Conference

2021 BioMAN Summit

This year’s 2-day virtual Summit will bring together thought leaders from industry, academia, and government who are working to meet the novel scientific and technological challenges of expanding the reach of cell and gene therapies. In a series of invited presentations, we will:


what innovative cell and gene therapies are advancing through the development pipeline in the immuno-oncology space and across other disease indications.


what the cell and gene therapy ‘factory of the future’ looks like and how it will meet the technical and logistical challenges of scaled-up or scaled-out manufacturing.


what novel technologies can address current cell and gene therapy bottlenecks such as supply and variability of raw materials.


how analytics can improve process development and manufacturing and decrease the cost of goods for these modalities.


strategies for introducing new technologies in the face of compressed development timelines and accelerated product approvals.
