Gaithersburg, Maryland – September 14, 2017: MaxCyte, a US-based global company driving the acceleration of the discovery, development, manufacturing and commercialization of next-generation, cell-based medicines, announced today that Madhusudan V. Peshwa, PhD, MaxCyte Chief Scientific Officer, Executive Vice President, Cellular Therapies, will present at the Phacilitate Cell & Gene Therapy Europe conference to be held September 19-21, 2017 in Berlin, Germany.
Dr. Peshwa will moderate and present an overview of MaxCyte’s clinically and commercially validated, regulatory compliant, automated, cGMP closed system platform technology for ex vivo non-viral delivery, in a panel discussion on September 21 at 11:35 a.m. CEST entitled, “Assessing the latest non-viral delivery technologies – Can we define their real potential to deliver improvements on viral alternatives and/or to open up new indications and markets to gene therapy?” Also as part of this panel, he will deliver a case study presentation at 3 p.m. CEST that day, within the track: R&D Updates & Emerging Science: Gene Editing Platforms. The case study will describe pre-clinical in vitro and animal model results, as well as translational development of scalable cGMP compliant processes for manufacture of gene-corrected hematopoietic stem cells, as potential treatment for genetic diseases.
“Our focus at MaxCyte is to support our biopharmaceutical partners in bringing to market next-generation cell-based medicines, and we’re pleased to contribute to industry discussions on how to successfully commercialize those products using our MaxCyte GT® Flow Electroporation™ System,” said Doug Doerfler, MaxCyte President & CEO MaxCyte.
