Master in Manufacturing of Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products

masterDue to the difficulty in finding professionals who have sound-training in the technologies related to cell therapy, gene therapy and tissue engineering, and who, at the same time, have a thorough grounding in the regulatory aspects concerning the development of these types of products as well as the necessary requirements to work in GMP laboratories, the Coordination Unit of the Andalusian Initiative for Advanced Therapies launched a training programme in the manufacturing of advanced therapy medicinal products in 2009. From 2010, thanks to the collaboration of the University of Granada, this programme attained “Master Degree” recognition and, since 2012 it has been offered in English with a focus on international students.

This Master in Manufacturing of Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products is offered as a blended learning model. The theoretical training is completed online by students at their convenience, albeit with continuous support from instructors, through a dedicated e-learning platform and the practical training is provided in a GMP laboratory for the manufacture of advanced therapy medicinal products, built in 2009 specifically for training purposes, in the Advanced Multifunctional Centre for Simulation and Technological Innovation, CMAT, managed by Línea IAVANTE (Fundación Progreso y Salud) which belongs to the Regional Ministry of Health.

"The Andalusian Initiative for Advanced Therapies together with the University of Granada established one of the best programmes to learn about ATMPs and the basics of GMP. The tutoring is very interactive not only during practical phase but also in the online-based theoretical sections. You will not miss classes. The programme offers a great chance to get into contact with other people working in ATMP and GMP sectors and to build up networks throughout Europe. You have the chance to exchange experiences with experienced tutors and lecturers, also in regulatory aspects. In addition to learn and be trained, it is really easy to socialize in the sunny area of Andalusia with all its historical sights in the beautiful old city centre of Granada".
