AutoCRAT is a Horizon 2020 Project focused on:

  • delivering new cell and cell-based therapies for osteoarthritis (OA) and joint repair using sustainable sources of cells and

  • developing a closed, scalable and regulatory-compliant automated system to enable future production of therapeutic products.

Repairing Damage

Repairing Damage

AutoCRAT will explore using articular chondrocytes (cartilage cells) to help repair damage to joints.

Preventing & Treating OA

Preventing & Treating OA

AutoCRAT will explore using mesenchymal stromal cells (MSC) and extracellular vesicles (EVs) to prevent and to treat OA.

Generating Cells

Generating Cells

AutoCRAT will generate sustainable sources of cells ready for therapeutic use.

Automated Production

Automated Production

AutoCRAT will build a Regenerative Medicine Factory for cost-effective, controlled, automated manufacture of therapeutic products in line with regulations.
