Research Group leader, Associate Professor in Stem Cell Science
Cell and Gene therapies are life-changing new categories of medicines whose full potential is only just beginning to emerge. They are cutting-edge and rapidly progressing fields of Biological Therapies. Both therapies aim to
treat, prevent or potentially cure diseases and both approaches offer the potential to diminish the fundamental cause of genetic and acquired diseases by substituting the missing protein or cells causing the disease’s symptoms. Cell and gene therapies may offer longer lasting effects than traditional medicines. They are overlapping fields of biomedical research and treatments. However, cell and gene therapies work differently. Cell therapy aims to treat diseases by restoring or altering certain sets of cells or by using cells to carry a therapy through the body while gene therapy treats diseases by replacing, inactivating or introducing genes into cells— either inside the body (in vivo) or outside of the body (ex vivo). Some therapies are considered both cell and gene therapies. These therapies work by modifying genes in specific types of cells and inserting them into the body.
With the promising significance of Cell and Gene therapy, it is poised to transform the healthcare and biopharma industry soon. The market is estimated to increase expeditiously, encompassing sales forecasts of
EUR 27.9 billion by 2026. The development of biological therapies is rapidly expanding, however, it poses different challenges to research and development, authorisation, manufacturing, accessibility, and ensuring safety throughout the lifecycle of the product.
The two-day Congress will provide an interactive, cutting edge, and comprehensive discussions in collaborative format led by key experts with intimate knowledge in the industry. Gain practical strategies and best practices on challenges, innovations, technologies, and concepts to help you gain access to the booming CGT market.
We are putting together an agenda that focuses on “Realising the promises of next generation therapies”.
We are gathering high calibre expert speakers to participate and share their knowledge and expertise through Keynote Presentations and Panel discussions, addressing all aspects of the industry.
We look forward to welcoming you to the CGT World Congress 2023!
