About this facility

The overall mission of the Clinical Cell and Vaccine Production Facility is to help translate insights into novel cellular therapies. Other important missions include:

  • To activate and/or gene transduce cells for allogeneic or autologous cell based cancer therapies.
  • To answer questions relative to the effectiveness of cell and gene therapy by analysis of patient samples.
  • To develop new and improved methods of ex vivo cell culture and gene transduction.
  • To maintain a knowledge of regulatory requirements and guidelines and provide expertise to Penn investigators and collaborators.
  • To increase the impact of potential novel cellular therapies by facilitating wide application of the techniques developed.
