About the Annual Meeting of the American Society of Gene & Cell Therapy
The American Society of Gene and Cell Therapy’s (ASGCT) Annual Meeting, celebrating its 25th year in 2022, is the premier event for professionals in gene and cell therapy. The four-day meeting—and one preceding day of Pre-Meeting Workshops—is the best place for people in the field to learn from the latest scientific research, stay up to date on new technologies, and make career-advancing connections with peers.
Originally designed as a venue for academic researchers to share their work, the Annual Meeting has grown to serve a wide community encompassing clinicians, bio-industry development, regulatory agencies, equipment manufacturers, patient advocates, and more.
