Brent Rice, PhD

CMC Technical Lead

Brent is a part of the Cell Therapy team at Precision, focused on process development and tech transfer activities. Having begun as a chemical engineer and completed his PhD at the University of Colorado – Boulder, his focus was quickly diverted from the oil industry to the cell therapy industry. He has now spent the last 8 years working with a wide variety of cell therapy companies and hospitals around the world as they assessed and improved the production of their therapies. With this experience, he specializes in cell therapy process development with a particular emphasis on ensuring long-term manufacturability. When not thinking about manufacturing, he enjoys meandering city streets in pursuit of the best places to drink coffee and see performance art, always hoping to stumble into a circus performance.
