Point-of-Care Cell Manufacturing Committee

BioCanRx has established a Point-of-Care (POC) Cell Manufacturing Committee, made up of scientists, clinicians and guided by subject matter experts, to oversee the expansion and integration of our POC manufacturing sites into a functional network across Canada. The benefit of our POC network is to enable access to cutting-edge, cellular cancer immunotherapies to Canadians through clinical trials.
