Collaborating on Cell Therapy in the UK

By GE Healthcare Life Sciences

Organizations in the UK come together to support the scale-up of cell therapies to help reach more patients.


Three UK sites were awarded funding to form a network of advanced therapy treatment centres – joint ventures funded by Innovate UK, and comprised of industry, academic and NHS partners. The centres; Innovate Manchester Advanced Therapy Centre Hub (iMATCH), the Midlands-Wales Advanced Therapy Treatment Centre (MW-ATTC, comprising Birmingham, Wales and Nottingham) and the Northern Alliance Advanced Therapies Treatment Centre (NAATTC, comprising Scotland, Newcastle and Leeds) will specialize in the delivery of cell and gene therapy products.
