Join us in-person in Cambridge for the 4th IPITA/HSCI/JDRF Summit on Stem Cell Derived Beta Cells where Evotec will be sponsoring and presenting it’s science in collaboration with Sernova.
Presentation | April 24 from 2:45 – 4:25om ET
Manufacturing of optimized human islet-like clusters (ILCs) from iPSCs and functional testing of an ILC + Cell Pouch™ combination in vivo
Evotec has developed a scalable and comprehensive process for GMP manufacturing of ILCs from a human GMP-grade induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) line for cell therapy in human insulin-dependent diabetes. In 2022, Evotec entered into a collaboration with Sernova Corp., which has developed the proprietary Cell Pouch System™. Following implantation, the Cell Pouch develops a vascularized environment to support engraftment and long-term function of therapeutic cells.
