Full description:

In the Pharma-Factory project, scientists are exploring how to modify plant cells to produce new medical products through a process called plant-molecular-farming, or PMF. This includes the development of new antibody molecules for HIV. We invite patients on antiretroviral therapy (treatment/prevention) to contribute views on these potential future medical options and how they are made. Your involvement may include participation in workshops to explore your views and exhibitions of PMF products.

Date from

21st November 2019

Date to

31st January 2021


The public and patient involvement (PPI) programme of Pharma-Factory is led by St George's, University of London and the London College of Communication (University of the Arts).

The Pharma Factory project is funded by the European Commission H2020 and involves 5 companies, 6 universities and 3 public research institutions across Europe, all focused on development of different medical innovations using PMF.

The project includes a PPI programme to ensure research and the resulting products remain relevant to patients and medical providers and will produce more effective and efficient medical diagnostics and treatments.
