Building in Solutions for Anticipated Challenges in CAR T Development Programs

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials, Drug Discovery & Development, Cell and Gene Therapy,
  • Wednesday, June 14, 2023

CAR T-cell therapies are fundamentally changing the landscape of cancer treatment. Successful commercialization of multiple CAR T treatments, plus continued advancements in the technologies, combine to make this a very active segment of drug development. Despite the excitement and hope they have brought to the patient and research communities, the sponsors developing these therapeutics are encountering challenges that have delayed and seriously threatened the advancement of their programs. These therapies require specialized sites, recruitment strategies and clinical development partners experienced in delivery of these complex programs.

In this webinar, attendees will hear from speakers partnering with the sponsors developing novel CAR T therapeutics. Their corporate and personnel experience in delivering these complex programs has armed them with the lessons learned to design current and future CAR T programs in anticipation of expected challenges. Register to hear these speakers address the most common challenges and questions they hear from their CAR T sponsors.

Register today for an informative overview of how to address the challenges arising in CAR T-cell development programs. Attendees are encouraged to bring their questions, notepad and colleagues to this webinar!
