Uta Griesenbach and Rafael J. Yáñez-Muñoz, 'The British Society for Gene and Cell Therapy', Human Gene Therapy, Oct 2021, 983-985.

Our mission:

We aim to support progress & translation of gene & cell therapies.

Our vision:

We want to see a world where gene and cell therapies are mainstream 

 

BSGCT will facilitate this progress by:

 

  • Promoting communication and the free flow of information between scientists in academia and industry, leading to better collaborations and the sharing of knowledge and resources.

  • Providing a forum for specialised scientific debate in the field of cell- and gene-based treatments, particularly to enhance the education of younger scientists and clinicians.

  • Supporting and promoting early career researchers in all aspects of their professional development.

  • Improving the interaction between scientists and clinicians, to enhance thorough science-led and ethical evaluation of new technologies in the clinic.

  • Improving public awareness and providing an informed and responsible voice for science in this field.

  • Improving the productivity of gene and cell therapy research in the UK, expediting technology transfer from the laboratory for clinical study as soon as it is appropriate.

  • Developing strong links with donors and funding bodies, aiming to improve the scientific infrastructure that already exists in the UK.
