主題演講：The State of the ART of Manufacturing CAR T Cells and The Latest Advancements
Abstract: The approval of CAR-T cell therapy for ALL and NHL by FDA has led to increased academic and industrial interest for this therapy. The success of this promising therapy relies on reproducible manufacturing of high-quality clinical-grade CAR T cells. We have established a robust modular CAR-T manufacturing platform as well as a clinical grade retroviral vector manufacturing process, which allowed us to manufacture hundreds of CAR-T cell products and support 12 phase I/II CAR-T cell clinical trials successfully at our center. Over the years, we have made improvement of our existing manufacturing platform and tested new manufacturing procedures that supported the products meeting all critical quality attributes. We have generated T cells expressing CARs encoded by gammaretroviral vectors starting from either healthy donors or cryopreserved patient apheresis products using Prodigy. Moreover, the emergence of CRISPR-Cas and iPSC technologies has pointed new directions for CAR-T cell manufacturing.
-- ?Define the central role of CAR-T cell manufacturing for the clinical applications of CAR-T cell therapies
-- ?Summarize the current CAR-T cell manufacturing platforms (modular and continuous)
-- ?MSK experience for CAR-T manufacturing and evolvement of our manufacturing platform
-- ?Manufacturing of large-scale clinical grade retroviral vectors for CAR-T cell therapy
-- ?Quality control for clinical grade retroviral vector and CAR-T cell manufacturing

Dr. Steve Oh obtained his PhD from Birmingham University, UK (1990) and is the Director of Stem Cell Bioprocessing and Institute Scientist, Stem Cell Group. He holds several industry leadership roles e.g. Past Vice President of International Society of Cell and Gene Therapy (ISCT); Member of International Society of Stem Cell Research (ISSCR); Member of International Stem Cell Banking Initiative (ISCBI); Vice President of Stem Cell Society Singapore (SCSS). He is also an Adjunct Associate Professor at NTU, PhD Supervisor at A*STAR Graduate Academy and has received research funding grants ranging from SGD 10 to 25 million. He has 42 Patents, granted and pending, 107 scientific publications, written the book “Sensational Stem Cell: How to cure medical complications.” and created 2 companies: Veristem and Zenzic Labs.
Our research is focused on human adult and pluripotent stem cell bioprocessing. Our team has developed a range of patent families for the manufacture of mesenchymal stem cells, reprogrammed human induced pluripotent stem cells and created neural cells, cardiomyocytes, blood cells, cartilage, bone and retinal pigment epithelial cells at bioreactor scale using a range of microcarrier technologies including biodegradable ones. Most recently, we have achieved a novel method of directed differentiation using CRISPR technology that will accelerate therapeutic applications of stem cells. A complimentary technology that has been developed is the use of microfluidics for separations of cell and particulates.
主題演講：A Broad Technology Platform for Reprogramming, Expansion of Pluripotent Stem Cells and Differentiation to Cell & Gene Therapies
Abstract: The BTI, at A*STAR has developed a Broad Technology Platform for Reprogramming, Expansion of Pluripotent Stem Cells and Differentiation to Cell Therapies. The IPS-SpheresTM technology is capable of automating the reprogramming of 4 different cell sources: T cells, haematopoietic stem cells, fibroblasts and mesenchymal stem cells into human induced pluripotent stem cells. From each reprogramming campaign, we can select up to 96 wells of clones to characterize and pick the best growing clone that can be cultured in suspension cultures and differentiated to target lineages.
Using the microcarrier technology IPS-SpheresTM, BTi has been able to demonstrate production of neuroprogenitors and neurons at 10 million cells/ml. These neurons have been demonstrated to be functional in mouse and rat animal models of Parkinson’s disease with rapid recovery times within 3 to 6 months depending on the cell dose. Secondly, BTI has cardiomyocytes in a completely defined serum free media with 2 small molecules achieving 8 million cells/ml in a suspension bioreactor. Cardiomyocytes have been implanted in pig models of cardiac infarction. Most recently, BTi has manufactured CD34+ haematopoietic progenitors from hiPSC on this platform achieving 2 million cells/ml, these have been further differentiated to universal O negative Rhesus negative RBCs (17 million cells/ml.) and are being tested in animal models of acute anaemia. This platform is broadly available for scale up of pluripotent stem cell therapies to meet the global shortage of cells for therapies.

主題演講：Automated Manufacturing of Chimeric Antigen Receptor T Cells
Abstract: The chimeric antigen receptor gene-modified T cells (CAR-T cells) technology has been proven clinically successful since 2010, especially targeting CD19 molecules in the treatment of refractory, relapsed B cell-derived malignancies in which the clinical efficacy has never been achieved by traditional tumor therapy strategies, and become the most attractive area in cancer immunotherapy. However, CAR-T cell technology has been experiencing huge challenges, including the expensive preparation and quality control costs for CAR-T cells and lacking clinically verified automated and closed technology. In another word, current mainstream technology hugely relies on highly skillful personnel that increases risk of contamination and production failure, and brings uncertainty for its industrialization. In this presentation, Dr. Yang will analyze the development trend based on his team’s effort in this area, and summarize how applying automated platform to CAR-T cell manufacturing will prompt CAR-T cell technology industrialization and lead to clinical success.

主題演講：A Cornerstone Industrial Purification Platform for Exosomes
Abstract: Exosome-based therapies are already in advanced clinical trials as many new applications beckon. This highlights a need for a simple effective purification platform that maximizes probability for clinical success and hastens the path to market. This presentation will share detailed case studies with extensive analytical support, illustrating a broadly applicable platform approach for purifying exosomes from all cell culture sources. Removal of host cell DNA, host proteins, virus, and endotoxins will be discussed.
Exosomes are quickly evolving as next-generation candidates for regenerative therapy but manufacturing technology lags behind.
--??The antibody industry demonstrated the value of a platform approach to purification. A similar approach is needed for exosomes.
--??This presentation will describe a scalable platform that can be used as a cornerstone to purify exosomes from all cell cultures.
--??It particularly focuses on removal of chromatin since chromatin interferes with both purification efficiency and product quality.
--??New high throughput analytical methods combining multi-angle light scattering and immunofluorescence will also be presented.
