Conference on Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products

Advanced Therapies – Challenges for Routine Applications


17 - 18 May 2022 | DECHEMA-Haus, Frankfurt am Main


Online registration is expected to be available in March 2022.

In recent years, Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products (ATMP) have evolved into a promising and highly hoped-for medical approach to cure a broad spectrum of inherited and acquired human diseases, ranging from cancer to immunological disorders and rare diseases. However, the path from development to clinical application is not yet routine. Advances in development and manufacturing will be presented at ATMP 2022, as well as quality control methods and regulatory aspects.

The focus is on the path to safe and beneficial advanced therapies for the patient. The event will highlight the challenging field of gene and cell therapeutic approaches. The challenges and issues of manufacturing and analytics of gene and cell therapeutics are very different from all other therapeutics, including biopharmaceuticals. A key factor of success is the management of multiple challenges addressing safety, purity and potency of these advanced therapies.
