NCI Resources for Cell Therapy Production

The NCI Biopharmaceutical Development Program (BDP) currently provides centralized GMP manufacturing of viral vectors and cell therapy products for extramural investigators. For more information on these production capabilites, please see these announcements:

DCTD to Support Cell Therapy Production at NCI for Multicenter Clinical Trials

DCTD Seeking Project Proposals for Viral Vector and Cell Therapy Production at NCI

Manufacturing support is offered through the following two mechanisms:

NCI Experimental Therapeutics (NExT) Program — Investigators seeking production of clinical grade vector and/or cell therapy products can submit proposals to the NExT Program. Applications are accepted three times per year (February, June, and October).

Cancer Therapy Evaluation Program (CTEP) — Investigators seeking clinical trial support as well as product manufacturing can submit a Letter of Intent to CTEP for acceptance into a clinical trials network such as the Experimental Therapeutics Clinical Trials Network (ETCTN).
