Abstract

At the UMC Utrecht, a new Gene and Cell Therapy Facility (GCT-F) for gene and cellular therapy protocols has recently been opened and is now fully operational. The main objective for building this expensive facility was to enable translation of preclinical research into clinical protocols, with an emphasis on the preparation of genetically modified cellular products.
