Registration open for Committee for Advanced Therapies stakeholders workshop

News 30/11/2011

Registration is open for a one-day workshop for stakeholders of the Committee for Advanced Therapies (CAT), taking place at the European Medicines Agency on 12 January 2012.

The workshop's main aim is to communicate the outcome of focus groups held during 2011, as part of the Committee's ongoing effort to strengthen dialogue with its stakeholders. The focus groups discussed:

  • the non-clinical development of advanced-therapy medicines;
  • proposals for the online organisation of scientific guidance documents on gene therapy and on cell-based medicines;
  • incentives for academics, hospitals and trusts developing advanced-therapy medicines.

Speakers from the CAT, as well as from the pharmaceutical industry, academia, hospitals and charities, will come together to discuss solutions for the issues identified during the focus groups.

Attendees will be able to send questions to the organising committee in advance. These questions will form the basis of the panel discussions.

Registration is open until 3 January 2012 at
