According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), cellular and gene therapy-related research and development in the United States continue to grow fast, with several products advancing in clinical development.

The New York/New Jersey chapter invites you to join your regulatory colleagues for a presentation on this topic from an accomplished regulatory policy and strategy leader with a successful track record of initiating and advancing pivotal policy topics in cellular and gene therapies. The presentation will highlight some of the different regulatory pathways exclusive to gene therapies within the larger area of regenerative medicine, followed by an overview of recent FDA Guidance for industry-specific retinal diseases. The session will conclude with a summary of Health Authority interaction mechanisms and designations that can enable gene therapy development.

A live Q&A portion with the speaker will follow the presentation.

This event is brought to you by the RAPS New York/New Jersey Chapter to encourage knowledge sharing and community development. RAC holders may claim 1.0 RAC recertification credits.
