Cellular Biomanufacturing 2023 Workshop

Time: 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m., Reception: 5 p.m. - 7 p.m.
Children's National Research & Innovation Campus
7144 13th Pl NW, Washington, DC 20012

The objective of the “Cellular Biomanufacturing 2023” workshop is to explore the current state-of-the-art technologies, scientific gaps, and opportunities since the first NSF workshop on Cellular Biomanufacturing was organized in 2017 with a primary focus on therapeutic cell manufacturing. The first workshop provided a unique opportunity to discuss the field with peers from academia and other relevant organizations. Since then, the field has evolved to the point where immunotherapies are increasingly being utilized by various medical institutions.

Inspired by these recent advancements, NSF is sponsoring a follow-up workshop to bring investigators together for scientific discussions, networking, and encouraging new collaborations. In addition to the NSF officials, representatives from other agencies, including NIH, NCI, FDA, etc. will be present to share ideas and the trajectory of the field. Such broad and trans-agency representation on a focused topic is unique and further highlights the ongoing collaborative efforts in support of this scientific area. The workshop is highly focused by design to enable interactive brainstorming sessions and networking.
