UoGuelph hosts CATTI cell and gene therapy training centre


The University of Guelph will host the Canadian Advanced Therapies Training Institute’s (CATTI) new cell and gene therapy (CGT) training centre. CATTI will use UoGuelph’s labs to provide a hands-on learning program for postsecondary graduates, professionals, and companies in the CGT field. The training centre’s development was facilitated through a partnership with UoGuelph, OmniaBio Inc, and the Centre for Commercialization of Regenerative Medicine (CCRM). “This [training site] is a first for Canada, and I’m pleased to see this coming to fruition so quickly as it will benefit Canadians by fostering a strong, domestic biomanufacturing industry,” said CCRM President Michael May.
