Event Title
OTP Town Hall: Cell Therapy Chemistry, Manufacturing, and Controls – June 2023
June 8, 2023

June 8, 2023
11:30 AM - 1:00 PM ET

The FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER) Office of Therapeutic Products (OTP) is hosting its next virtual town hall on Thursday, June 8, 2023. Due to high interest from the public, this event will focus on cell therapy chemistry, manufacturing, and controls (CMC), including tissue-engineered medical products regulated by OTP, and will be a continuation of the December 2022 virtual town hall. Experts from the Office of Cellular Therapy & Human Tissue CMC will be on-hand to answer questions.

Focus for This Town Hall: What Are Chemistry, Manufacturing, and Controls for Cell Therapy and Tissue-Engineered Medical Products?

The FDA requires sponsors to provide CMC information as part of an investigational new drug application. The CMC information should describe product manufacturing and testing to ensure safety, identity, quality, purity, and strength (including potency) of the investigational product. Please see this FDA guidance document or view materials from the December 2022 cell therapy CMC town hall event for more information.
