The importance of gene and cell therapies as well as tissue therapeutics (Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products) is steadily increasing worldwide. In particular, patients with rare diseases - at least affecting 4 million people in Germany - and otherwise untreatable cancer patients can benefit from treatment in the long term. Technological advances, such as the expansion of the use of artificial intelligence, are further dynamizing the field.

Fifteen gene therapies and two cell therapies are currently approved in Europe (as of June 2024). The number of clinical trials worldwide is constantly increasing. Groundbreaking developments are on the horizon for this innovative business field, with sales of up to EUR 27.9 billion expected by 2026. The German government has also recognized the potential of these innovative therapies. In a National Strategy for Gene and Cell-Based Therapies, concrete measures have been defined to improve the framework conditions, e.g. in research and development, regulation or manufacturing practice.  Bringing together different stakeholders is a a key pillar of the strategy. It facilitates the dialogue across disciplinary, sectoral, regional and national boundaries and thus accelerates translation.

This is where the GeneNovate Investors' Day comes in: without smart investments and relevant expert mentoring, no new therapies!
