Innovation is in our RNA

COVID-19 vaccination has seen a niche technology go global, but CPI has been innovating with RNA and encapsulation technologies since 2015.

Endorsed by RNA experts

Our Advisory Committee ensure the robustness and integrity of our RNA Training Academy, bringing a breadth of RNA/LNP knowledge and expertise from industry, research, and academia, to advise on our course content.

We’ve seen a massive expansion in mRNA technologies. We’re now struggling to keep up with training workforces to manufacture these products so there is a need – an acute need – for CPI’s RNA Training Academy.

The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the opportunities that RNA therapeutics can offer. CPI’s RNA Training Academy will upskill existing GMP operators to prepare them for manufacturing RNA for the UK market, and beyond, to ensure that the UK has the required biomanufacturing capacity to meet future demand.
