Welcome to Advanced Therapies Week
Advanced therapies are already changing the lives of thousands of people, and have the potential to change, and save, the lives of millions.
Advanced therapies are new medical products that use gene therapy, cell therapy, tissue engineering and immunotherapy. They are showing great promise in diseases that have no other treatment options including neurology, rare diseases and muscular dystrophy and are changing the face of cancer care. These therapies are the future of modern medicine.
The inspiration, and ambition, that underpins Advanced Therapies Week is that, for advanced therapies to fulfil its potential for humanity and become the standard of care for patients worldwide, a wider audience needs to be engaged beyond the brilliant scientists and innovators that have brought us this far. The wider public; patients and patient advocates; clinicians and healthcare professionals; young, talented people choosing their careers.
Advanced Therapies Week 2020 will be five days of events and community activities to raise public awareness and to support innovation in the advanced therapies industry. It is led by Phacilitate and supported by a wide range of organisations.
