Tissue Engineered Medical Products: Springboard from the Lab to Patients
Wednesday, March 29, 2023 (1:00 PM - 2:00 PM) (EDT)
Join MPR Associates, EpiBone, and Orgenesis (formerly TGI) for a fireside chat about the common roadblocks in commercializing Tissue Engineered Medical Products (TEMPs) and how to remove them. Challenges for commercialization include: chain-of-custody, validating production processes as volume increases, and process automation and closure. Panelists will share insights into how their own challenges were overcome.
