Cell and Gene Therapy Business Unit
The Cell and Gene Therapy Business Unit is especially important to Fraunhofer IZI and comprises development activities and contract research projects to develop innovative cell and gene therapy concepts as well as their validation, testing and manufacture according to GLP and GMP standards. In this regard, the Cell Therapeutics business field comprises all of the developments relating to proprietary therapeutic concepts, while research and development services for industry partners involving the testing and manufacture of cell and gene therapy agents as commissioned by the customer stand at the fore of the Manufacturing and Quality Control business field. The
institute’s own future developments will be more heavily devoted to the field of tumor immunology. The Manufacturing and Quality Control business field is currently focused on approaches to fight cancer and treat cardiovascular diseases; the field is, however, generally set up to deal with all indications.
