Understanding cell therapy regulation is an essential component of the bench to bedside pipeline. Without approval from a country’s regulator (Health Canada, FDA, EMA, PMDA, etc.), a product cannot be sold to consumers and the millions invested in research and development, manufacturing and clinical trials is media down the drain.

Cell therapies present a range of challenges for regulators and, of course, for the companies developing them. In advance of an upcoming webinar on cell therapy regulation, hosted by RegMedNet, that same group has produced an infographic on current cell therapies and points of view from the community on this theme. You can see it below.

Log in on June 27 to RegMedNet’s webinar to hear from the following experts:

  • Jacqueline Barry, Chief Clinical Officer, Cell and Gene Therapy Catapult
  • Patrick Bedford, Manager, Clinical Translation & Regulatory Affairs, CCRM
  • Mark W. Sawicki, Chief Commercial Officer, Cryoport
  • James L. Sherley, Director, Assymetrex

And if you’re still looking for information or answers on cell therapy regulation (or this timing isn’t convenient), here are three Canadian events, but they require you to attend in person:

If you prefer self-learning on your own schedule, blogger David Brindley has covered this topic frequently as one of Signals’ commercialization experts. Read his posts here.
