In a recent blog, Bryan McSwiney, Global Director of Technical Operations for Life Sciences Manufacturing at Cognizant, shares his insights and predicts a ‘major shift ahead’ in the cell and gene therapy manufacturing space. McSwiney points out that the life sciences industry is seeing dramatic growth in cell and gene therapy development, with 900 companies pursuing new therapies and more than 1,000 active clinical trials.

As these therapies evolve into a meaningful industry subsector, there will be new challenges, including a fundamental shift in manufacturing from ‘made-to-stock’ to ‘made-to-order.’ Companies may need to move away from traditional bulk manufacturing models to circular supply chains. You can read more about the manufacturing challenges and opportunities in McSwiney’s blog.
