Challenges Facing the Future of Gene Therapy

Updated: Aug 28, 2020

Last week Cellix attended the impressive BIO International. With over 17,000 attendees it's one of the world’s biggest and best biotech and pharma conferences, celebrating the globally important innovations in biotechnology. The top companies in the field come together to share ideas and initiate collaborations, driving the future of biotech and medicine. Aside from the thousands of meetings (over 48,000!), there were also some fantastic talks from industry leaders.

These talks spanned many topics but of particular interest to us, and a focus at the conference this year, was the field of gene therapy and what the future held for it. What hurdles have to be overcome before we can fully harness the next stages of this treatment, gene therapy 2.0?
