Professor Carl June
Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine
University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine

carl june

Awarded in October 2020

Dr. June is currently Director of the Center for Cellular Immunotherapies at the Perelman School of Medicine, and Director of the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy at the University of Pennsylvania. His researchfocuses on developing ways to enhance the ability of the natural immune system to recognize and eliminate tumor cells. His group developed and published a new therapy in which patients with refractory and relapsed chronic lymphocytic leukemia were treated with CAR-T cells (genetically engineered versions of their own T cells) in 2011. The treatment was approved by the US FDA in 2017 as Tisagenlecleucel for leukemia and lymphoma. He has published more than 450 articles and is the recipient of numerous honors and prizes, including election to the Institute of Medicine, the American Academy of Arts & Sciences, the American Association for Cancer Research Academy, The National Academy of Sciences, and the American Philosophical Society.

The award will support Dr. June’s efforts to build a robust production pipeline for engineering, characterizing and selecting the best possible cell-based products and therapeutics.

Assistant Professor Michael Milone
Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine
University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine

michael milone

Awarded in October 2020

Dr. Milone isAssociate Director of the Toxicology Laboratory at the Center for Cellular Immunotherapies. He earned his MD and PhD from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. He went on to post-graduate medical training in internal medicine, laboratory medicine and transfusion medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Milone continued his scientific research studies during a post-doctoral fellowship pursuing adoptive immunotherapy of cancer with Dr. Carl June at the University of Pennsylvania. This work lead to an open Phase I study of artificial antigen receptors in patients with B cell leukemia and lymphoma and to the approval, in 2017, by the US FDA of Tisagenlecleucel for treatment of leukemia and lymphoma. Dr. Milone’s laboratory continues to focus on genetic engineering and adoptive immunotherapy of cancer. Dr Milone has published 74 articles and has been recognized by numerous awards including the Stanely S. Bergen Medal of Excellence from UMDNJ. His work was included in the “Top Ten Clinical Research Achievement Award, Clinical Research Forum in 2017 and in the “Top 20 Clinical Research Papers for 2019, Clinical Research Forum in 2019”.

The award will support Dr. June’s efforts to build a robust production pipeline for engineering, characterizing and selecting the best possible cell based products and therapeutics.

Professor Anurag S. Rathore
Dept. of Chemical Engineering
Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi

anurag rathore

Awarded in September 2020

Dr. Rathore has ample research experience and a proven track record in premier Bio-Pharmaceutical and academic research institutions in the USA and India. His research focuses on solving problems faced in the manufacturing of human therapeutic biotech drugs and in the improvement of the efficiency of manufacturing processes.

Current projects cover continuous processing, multivariate data analysis of bioprocessing data, process analytical technology & quality by design, and characterization of biosimilar products. Dr. Rathore has produced a large volume of peer-reviewed publications and review articles.

Dr. Rathore collaborates with local and international Bio-Pharmaceutical companies and is also a member of regulatory organizations for BioPharma products. Additionally, he contributes to many public and private boards in the fields of chemical analysis, bioengineering, and bioprocessing.

The Agilent Thought Leader award will support his research in the development of improved workflows and best practices for the molecular characterization of monoclonal antibody-based drugs.
