Following a rigorous selection process Aptus Clinical have been appointed as a supplier for Clinical Services by the Cell and Gene Therapy Catapult (CGTC) supporting their in-house Clinical Development team.

Aptus Clinical’s role will be to ensure high quality and timely delivery of regulatory clinical trials for the CGTC’s collaborators, primarily through the provision of dedicated site set-up and monitoring of investigational sites within the UK, which will ultimately deliver clinically meaningful benefit to patients through the successful registration of their advanced therapies in the UK and Europe.

Aptus has a proven track record of working collaboratively and leveraging their scientific and technical experience in clinical operations to provide innovative solutions, which have successfully optimised the set-up, conduct and reporting of studies. Applying this approach to future work with the CGTC they will contribute to the successful delivery of their Advanced Therapy studies. This collaboration will be led by Dr Ian Thomas, Clinical Development Director at Aptus Clinical.

In pursuit of further opportunity to develop partnerships with new clients interested in exploring the benefits of developing advanced therapies in the UK, Aptus CEO, Dr Steve McConchie, will be attending the forthcoming Cell and Gene Meeting on the Mesa from October 3rd to the 5th in La Jolla, California. This conference brings together senior executives and top decision-makers in the industry with the scientific community, to advance cutting-edge research into cures. It attracts one of the biggest audiences in the global Cell and Gene Therapy arena.

This follows hot on the heels of the Phacilitate Leaders Europe, Advanced Therapies conference held in London during September where Dr Thomas’ well received presentation on the UK Advanced Therapy Treatment Centres was made during the “Collaboration strategies: constructing a successful partnership with European clinical centres of excellence” workshop, chaired by Dr Jacqueline Barry, Chief Clinical Officer, CGTC.

Aptus Clinical CEO Steve McConchie said, “We are delighted to be broadening our collaboration with CGTC which builds on our existing participation in the recently announced Innovate Manchester Advanced Treatment Centre Hub (iMATCH) part of the IUK funded Advanced Therapy Treatment Centre Network. We look forward to collaborating with our colleagues in the CGTC, academia and the NHS to support development and delivery of advanced therapy studies in the UK and beyond.”
