SMART CAMP has launched and is actively building our research team!
Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research & Technology (SMART)
CAMP is part of the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research & Technology (SMART), which includes four other interdisciplinary research groups and the SMART Innovation Centre in Singapore.
This decade-long partnership between Singapore National Research Foundation (NRF) and MIT builds R&D teams aligned with MIT's aspiration to build a better world through research, teaching, and industrial engagement. SMART is also aligned directly with Singapore's strategic investment in a knowledge economy and workforce building in topics including human systems and manufacturing.
Cell Therapy Manufacturing Effort in Singapore
CAMP partners with Singapore's industry-aligned research teams, Allogeneic Stem Cell Manufacturing (ASTEM) and Integrated Manufacturing Programme for Autologous Cell Therapy (IMPACT) at at A*STAR and NUHS, as part of a $80M SGD investment in cell therapy manufacturing R&D announced in 2019.
US Landscape in Advanced Therapeutics Manufacturing
Cell therapy manufacturing is a worldwide challenge and opportunity.
As SMART CAMP is co-led by MIT faculty and researchers, CAMP provides a strong connection to research & innovation within the US market, including the Kendall Square innovation ecosystem of biopharma companies, investors, and research talent pipelines in MIT's backyard.
