Driving advanced therapy. The Carlos III Health Institute (IscIII), as an organism dependent on the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities,  has announced the allocation of €45 million for the State Network Consortium for the Development of Advanced Therapies Medicines (Certera).

This initiative, integrated into the Strategic Plan for Economic Recovery (Perte) for Vanguard Health and financed through the Recovery, Resilience and Transformation Mechanism, will benefit 43 entities distributed in 14 autonomous communities of Spain.

Certera focuses on promoting the development of innovative medicines and therapeutic solutions through the use of gene therapy, cell therapy and tissue engineering to combat different diseases. 

The grants will support the development of this network and  promote facilities, infrastructure, skills and human resources, distributed across three technical levels:  production of advanced therapy medicines, expansion of production capacity and provision of services for the development of advanced therapy medicines.

The consortium  seeks to link academic and technological capabilities from the research phase to early clinical trials , with the purpose of amplifying the potential already present or under construction in the field of advanced therapies in Spain.
