Gene and Cell Therapy Lab

The ITHS Gene and Cell Therapy Lab (GCTL) offers the infrastructure, technical expertise and regulatory expertise needed to develop and manufacture novel gene and cell therapy products. The typical users and types of studies of the GCTL include:

  • Stem cell therapy investigators
  • Cord-blood transplant investigators
  • Immunotherapy investigators
  • Clinical investigators pursuing clinical vector technology for therapies

The GCTL is a 2,200 square-foot clean room facility located in the ITHS Clinical Research Center in the University of Washington Medical Center.
