From Research to Real Estate, What’s Next for Cell and Gene Therapy in Philadelphia

September 8 @ 8:00 am - 11:30 am

Join the Philadelphia Business Journal for a morning of networking and enticing conversation as we explore what’s next for cell and gene therapy.

A key component fueling the growth of the Philadelphia region’s life sciences sector is the proliferation of cell and gene therapy companies. That has resulted in new jobs, new construction, and major commitments to life sciences from two of the city’s largest academic institutions.

The morning will kick off with a one-on-one power interview with Philadelphia Business Journal Reporter, John George, and Dr. James Wilson, Director of the University of Pennsylvania Gene Therapy Program.

Following the interview, two panel discussions will take place:

Panel 1: Building on the Momentum – Philadelphia has already emerged as a leading hub for Cell and Gene Therapy. Where do we go from here?

Panel 2: All In – University leaders explain why they have dedicated hundreds of millions of dollars to the life sciences industry, what it means for their schools and the region, and the challenges that lie ahead.
