You are invited to take part in the British-German Alliance for Advanced Therapies scientific meeting on Tuesday 26 March 2019, 11.00-19.00. This meeting is jointly hosted by the Cell and Gene Therapy Catapult (CGT Catapult), the UK's Science and Innovation Network, Charité and partners.

The day comprises a series of talks covering key technical themes for the manufacture of advanced therapies led by British and German cell and gene therapy experts. We also welcome you to join us for the evening networking dinner. This is an opportunity to meet fellow researchers and companies working in the field and hear about opportunities for international collaboration between Germany and the UK.

We hope you will be able to join us. Spaces are limited so please make sure that you RSVP by registering for free above.
