The Cellular Therapy Operations Program (CTOP) is a team of experienced clinical research professionals that support investigator-initiated clinical trials testing therapeutic agents produced at the Gates Biomanufacturing Facility (GBF). 

CTOP works on behalf of CU Anschutz, acting as the sponsor team, and is comprised of a Scientific and Medical Director, Regulatory and Operations Director, Project Manager, Pharmacovigilance Specialist, and Protocol Development Specialist. The team works closely with the PI, study team, GBF, and the Office of Regulatory Compliance to develop and operationalize cell therapy clinical trials.

This highly collaborative effort aims to generate multidimensional datasets from biospecimens from COVID-19 patients and controls, which will be integrated with matching clinical data. Following open science principles, the COVIDome datasets will be made accessible to the community through an online research portal, the COVIDome Explorer, as a global resource for data mining and hypothesis generation. Our mission is to enable the development of better prevention, diagnostic, and therapeutic tools for the clinical management of COVID-19.
