Without proper solutions and partnerships, employers and health insurers will be held responsible for extreme medical costs associated with gene therapy.

Despite the many challenges of the last two years, the global cell and gene therapy (CGT) market continues to rapidly expand. The investment landscape for regenerative medicine has grown 16% in 3 years, hitting an all-time high in 2021 of $23.1 billion raised.
