Speaker: Dr. Premkumar Jayaraman
Regional Field Applications Scientist, Cell and Gene Therapy (Asia Pacific and Japan)
The bootcamp leverages on the faculties' unique experiences with biologics and is designed specifically for cell therapy manufacturing. The curriculum will focus on:
The faculties include Dr. Howard Califarno, director of SMART Innovation Centre; as well as Professor Charles Cooney, founding Faculty Director of the Deshpande Center for Technological Innovation at MIT and sits on the Boards of Directors of Genzyme. Genzyme was the world’s third-largest biotechnology company focusing on biologics before it was acquired by Sanofi in 2011. Biologics back in its early days was in many ways similar to what cell therapy is now, there are more unknowns than knowns in its manufacturing, costing and business models.
Happy First Year Anniversary!
We began the journey with a small team and now we have 23 CAMP staff at Singapore and 13 at Boston today. Over the past 12 months, marked by exceedingly challenging times caused COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the world, CAMPers have perserved in innovating in cell therapy manufacturing analytics. We have set up infrastructure and workflows, reached out to collaborators, and identifed new potency and safety quality attributes. In CAMPFest 2020, we will celebrate these milestones, and at the same time, aspire to bring the CAMP-SG and CAMP-MIT teams together even closer towards achieving our program objectives. We will also hear from our CAMP PIs on translational pre-clinical and clinical models and their experience in cell therapy products, helping to reveal identifed CQAs and PATs to outcomes and tying them to adoption. Lastly, we will launch the CAMP library to connect our innovations to publications in the field.
