Avalon GloboCare Forms Strategic Partnership With Weill Cornell Medical College to Co-develop Technologies & Bio-production of CAR-T Therapy
Avalon GloboCare Corp. recently announced the company has formed a strategic partnership with Weill Cornell’s cGMP Cellular Therapy Facility and Laboratory for Advanced Cellular Engineering headed by Dr. Yen-Michael Hsu. This strategic partnership aims to co-develop bio-production and standardization procedures in procurement, storage, processing, clinical study protocols, and bio-banking for Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR)-T therapy, in accordance with the Foundation of Accreditation for Cellular Therapy (FACT) and American Association of Blood Banks (AABB) standards. This strategic partnership will enable Avalon GloboCare to implement the resulting laboratory infrastructure and clinical plans in China and the US.
This partnership also includes a CAR-T education program to support and foster collaborative research and training programs for scientists and clinicians between Weill Cornell and Hebei Yanda LuDaopei Hospital, which is Avalon GloboCare’s main affiliated clinical facility as well as the world’s single largest medical institution in CAR-T therapy.
“This strategic partnership will synergize Weill Cornell’s world-class cGMP cellular therapy facility and our immense clinical resources at the LuDaopei hospital network to accelerate innovative CAR-T technology development, standardization in bio-manufacturing process, as well as knowledge exchange in CAR-T and other cellular therapies.
