What is it?

HealthEx Cell and Gene Therapy is designed for C-suite and board level executives who are developing and commercialising cell and gene therapies for treatment of a variety of diseases.

This is a 40-person Chatham House Rule, formatted forum in which industry leaders discuss and shape the future of their sector behind closed doors. They are hollow-square formats and not your standard one-dimensional meeting format meaning all executives engage in meaningful strategic and sector debate and discussion. The forums will address the key industry challenges head on, providing genuine outcomes for the executives and the sector as a whole.

The 40 seats will be allocated with no fewer than 36 executives and KOLs, with the remaining seats taken by  Forum Co-Hosts that may include 1 Pharma, 1 Global Advisory, 1 Law Firm, 1 CRO and / or 1 Investor. The GEO breakdown will roughly be 40 US, 50% UK and EU and 10% RoW and as we are focused on diversity, we are looking to ensure that at least 30% of the attendees are women Executives.

Headline – short and enticing
Nutshell – a concise statement of the issue
Background – the players, the issue, what was at stake, etc
What Was Tried? - what worked and what didn’t
Questions - clarifying questions from the group.
Peer Consultation
Review - what are you taking back with you? what will you try?
