Novel advanced encapsulation system for delivery and protection of next-generation cell-based therapies

Project description

Safeguarding cells in cell-based therapies

Over the years, various cell-based therapies have been developed against a wide range of diseases, including genetic disorders and cancer. Despite their preclinical promise, cell-based therapies suffer from low engraftment and retention of injected cells. To address this shortcoming, scientists of the EU-funded NOAHs-ARK project propose an encapsulation technology that safeguards cells against immune attack and supports their function. The technology consists of a chemically defined template enriched with various novel molecules suitable for specific therapeutic applications. Following in vitro validation, the technology will obtain regulatory approval before being commercialised for clinical application.
