Session Title: GMP-Compliant iPSC lines and Differentiation Workflows for Cell Therapy
Session Date: Wednesday, June 15, 2022
Session Time: 8:15PM – 8:30PM
Abstract: Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) are emerging as a powerful starting material in regenerative medicine and cancer therapy, offering a promising allogeneic approach for a broad patient population. Our presentation will highlight key initiatives in iPSC banking and differentiation to make these therapies both process efficient and regulatory compatible.

    • Key Learnings:
      • How Catalent is developing an HLA-homozygous (HLA-h) universal cell bank from cord blood units accounting for key regulatory aspects such as donor eligibility and consent, GMP manufacturing and commercial use consent.
      • Our characterization criteria of the banks to ensure high genomic integrity, effectiveness of reprogramming and unlimited self-renewal.
      • Our initiatives to develop advanced GMP-compliant protocols are suitable for differentiating iPSCs into various cell types of medical interest including retinal pigment epithelium, mesenchymal stromal cells, natural killer cells and more.
