We think of our academic Clients as providing the fuel for PCT's experienced innovation engine, as well as for the field of cell therapy in general.
Our academic Clients engage with us for a wide range of services, which often involve manufacturing at a scale they cannot support internally, teaming up to solve commercial process development challenges, helping develop an assay or assay strategy, or simply preparing for a regulatory or accreditation audit.
We also have a strong Client base of academic entrepreneurs who are developing their own discoveries or inventions with the goal of spinning out into an independent company. They engage PCT for further development of their IP, as well as to develop their commercialization and business strategies to attract sufficient interest from potential investors.
These groups are drawn to PCT not only for our cell therapy development and commercialization experience, capacity and capability, but also our philosophy of not laying claims to the IP we develop for our Clients, as well as our extensive experience in interacting with the technology offices of academic institutions.
