Welcome to the Cell and Gene Therapy Products Symposium

The Cell and Gene Therapy Products (CGTP) Symposium: Manufacturing, Quality and Regulatory Considerations enables the exchange of scientific ideas and dialogue with regulators that form the basis of evolving regulatory practices in the development of these diverse and innovative products. The 2024 Symposium will explore how to continue to adapt concepts applied to other biologics and how to establish novel approaches where they are needed. The Symposium will be offered in-person as well as live streamed to a virtual audience.

In 2023, the CGTP Summit debuted as a new one-day program independent from the Symposium. The Summit is designed to discuss pertinent challenges in the cell and gene therapy field in a smaller format. Extend your stay to participate in the full four-day cell and gene therapy knowledge-sharing experience.
