Delivering a gene therapy to market requires a comprehensive and integrated approach. At the 4th annual Gene Therapy for Rare Disorders Conference, Precision ADVANCE participated in a panel discussion, and Precision for Medicine held two clinical presentations, providing crucial insights for clinical development, manufacturing, and commercialization of gene therapies.

On February 23, 2021, Precision ADVANCE’s Anshul Mangal moderated “Considerations for Early-Stage Gene Therapy Start-Ups: From Clinical Development to Manufacturing to Commercialization,” at the Gene Therapy for Rare Disorders virtual conference.  Project Farma’s Tony Khoury and Precision’s Philip Cyr and David Parker joined a panel of industry experts for an update on the status of their current pipelines and development process, as well as a discussion of their unique experiences leading early stage gene therapy companies, the challenges they faced and lessons learned.
