Dr Qasim Rafiq is a Senior Lecturer at University College London in Bioprocess Engineering and has been working in the field of cell and gene therapy, regenerative medicine and tissue engineering for >10 years.
He is a multidisciplinary engineer working at the life science, engineering and commercial interfaces with a research focus on translational science and bioprocessing of cell, gene and regenerative therapies. Research activities include the development of process systems for industrial scale biologics production (proteins, human cells, tissues or biological bulk products) and enabling tools and manufacturing technologies associated with their production. His primary focus is on biomanufacture and enhancing process and product understanding to enable successful translation from the laboratory to the clinic.
He is a Chartered Engineer (CEng) and Chartered Scientist (CSci) and sits on multiple scientific and engineering committees including ESACT-UK, IChemE Biochemical Engineering Subject Interest Group, and BIA’s Cell and Gene Therapy Advisory Committee.
