The COVID-19 pandemic diverted global attention toward the cell and gene therapy sector, which had found itself in a convenient position to produce vaccines and treatments against the virus.

However, these new opportunities have not come without obstacles, as regional lock-downs and added safety precautions around the world threatened research, logistics and supply.

In February 2021, Informa Connect conducted a global survey to find out what innovation has been developing across the cell and gene therapy space in response to the pandemic.

Based on responses from 92 cell and gene therapy professionals, this final report reveals the biggest challenges faced by companies in the space, the most significant financial shifts and what new strategies have been adopted across research, supply chains, manufacturing and partnering - read or download it here or by clicking on the image above.
