In addition to supporting the routine clinical stem cell transplant programme the JGCCT also collaborates on the development and manufacture of new cells based therapies for use in clinical trials.

• Use and develop specialist skills within the Quality Testing Dept. in order that patient evaluation and product quality testing are carried out appropriately and in a timely manner conducive to good patient management.
• Use and develop specialist skills within the Processing Dept in the controlled working environment, clean rooms and associated areas, to maintain regulatory compliance and a safe environment for the processing of cell harvests for clinical use.
• In carrying out these duties, the post holder will maintain close communication with Medical and Nursing staff attached to the Bone Marrow Transplant unit activities
