Clinical Cell and Vaccine Production Facility
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 is accredited by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT) as well as by the College of American Pathologists (CAP). Further, the CVPF is the only GMP (good manufacturing practices) compliant facility on campus and functions as an NCI approved Abramson Cancer Center (ACC) Shared Resource. As an ACC Shared Resource and Path and BioResources core facility, 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, explore our “Clinical Trials” page.

1.7 Million Reasons Why: A Request for Your Support

According to the American Cancer Society, 1,660,290 new cancer cases are expected to be diagnosed in 2014. The information also shows that cancer is the second most common cause of death in the US, exceeded only by heart disease, accounting for nearly 1 out of every 4 deaths. Most of you know I am researching novel cell and gene therapy treatments for cancer. The cancer patients I have been privileged to meet are united by hope, courage and determination.

Please support me as I make a difference in the fight against cancer. The Ride to Conquer Cancer® benefiting Penn Medicine's Abramson Cancer Center is a two-day 150 mile cycling ride through Eastern Pennsylvania. It will be a challenge in a number of ways, but with my bike and your generosity, a real impact will be made!
