Panel title

Cell and Gene Therapy revolution – how can Switzerland stay at the forefront?

Panel summary

With the US and China running 90% of clinical CGT trials, the EU, UK and Switzerland risk to fall behind. Where are the opportunities and challenges for Switzerland to play an important role in this growing sector? How can the access to novel therapies be improved? How do we bring brilliant research and breakthrough therapies to the patient – what can be different in Switzerland? How can production and supply support, and do we need a more coordinated Swiss way?
