Cell & Gene Therapy Symposium

September 7 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm

On September 7th, California Life Sciences and our member Johnson & Johnson Innovation will come together to co-host our West Coast Symposium focusing on Cell and Gene Therapy – Advancing Next Generation Therapies. Hear from experts throughout the innovation pipeline as we discuss three core priorities in this space:

  • Investment: Funding opportunities and challenges
  • Science: Next gen CAR design and screening
  • Operations: Advances in manufacturing to increase throughput and decrease cost

In addition to these thought-provoking panel discussions, there will be plenty of opportunities for connecting and collaborating during coffee breaks, lunch and an afternoon networking reception, combined with a poster presentation showcase to highlight breakthrough innovators in the cell and gene therapy space.


Cell & Gene Therapy QuickPitch Poster Session

As part of the symposium, we have launched the Cell & Gene Therapy QuickPitch Poster Session, where innovators can submit their potentially breakthrough science in cell and gene therapy for the chance to showcase their innovation in a live poster session. Selected finalists will present their poster at the symposium where the awardees will be chosen and announced live at the conclusion of the program.

Review this .pdf with more information about the poster session including the areas of focus, application timeline, and FAQs.
