Clinical Cell and Vaccine Production Facility (CVPF)
The Clinical Cell and Vaccine Production Facility (CVPF) renders bench-to-bedside translational medicine a reality. Equipped with state of the art facilities, the CVPF manufactures cell and gene biotherapeutics and has been accredited by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT) since 2008. As a shared resource within the Center for Cellular Immunotherapies (CCI) and the Division of Transfusion Medicine & Therapeutic Pathology within the Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine, the CVPF supports numerous investigational new drug (IND) protocols. Current protocols target a variety of disease indications (primarily HIV, adult and pediatric cancers, and stroke); many more trials are in development and, once approved, will further expand the scope of diseases targeted for cell and gene therapy. For more information on current trials, see our Clinical Trials page.
