This exceptional program, specifically designed for students enrolled in Farmaceutical, Biological and Biomedical Labtechnologies in the different University Colleges of Antwerp, offers a hands-on experience in Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP), with a particular focus on Advanced Therapeutic Medicinal Products (ATMP).
Working as an operator in a GMP environment is challenging. Not only must you have the necessary knowledge, certain skills and the right attitude are also crucial
And with the growing focus on personalized cell and gene therapy, companies in this industry are facing an increasing shortage of GMP-trained lab technicians
To address this issue, at.las decided last year to organize a GMP Summerschool in cooperation with experts from this industry.
Last year we could host 20 students, this year we can double the capacity, and are getting interest from other schools to collaborate for next year!
We greatly thank our consortium of industry experts from Advipro, anicells, eTheRNA, eyetec, MyCellHub, Tru Cleanroom Cleaning, and ViTalent.
And last not but not least to our first class of enthusiastic and motivated students from AP, KdG and Thomas Moore!
