As investment in gene therapies continues to grow rapidly, more effectively engaging patients throughout development has become a priority for any company serious about building safer and more meaningful gene therapy programs.

In this context, the 2nd Annual Gene Therapy Patient Engagement Summit will unite patient advocacy and engagement leaders from gene therapy and gene editing drug developers, patient groups and patients themselves to address the specific challenges of genetic therapy patient engagement, generating actionable insights through detailed case studies and open, honest discussions.

Join us to hear directly from companies and institutions including Spark Therapeutics, Ultragenyx, FDA, Global Genes, and CRISPR Therapeutics on key topics including managing expectations across gene therapy development, navigating patient input on one-time transformative treatments with novel clinical trial designs combined with extensive follow-ups, and developing educational materials on gene therapy to raise awareness in collaboration with patient advocacy organizations. Leverage their knowledge and experiences to ultimately ensure effective creation and implementation of patient-centric gene therapy programs.

From: 06/07/2022 - To: 06/09/2022
