09:25  Top Ten Events of 2021

  • 2021 was a year of resilience, strength and innovation in the advanced therapies sector.
  • Cell and Gene therapy expanded despite the ongoing pandemic.
  • 2021 was a year of advances in approvals, and delays in supply chain and clinical trial enrollment.  Rare Disease pipelines moved closer to approval and gene therapies experienced delays in clinical programs.  CMC dominated discussions and our high growth industry felt labor shortage growing pains.  What will this mean moving into 2022?
