We gladly invite you to the 2nd Academic – Industrial partnering event of GATE – the Ghent institute of Cell & Gene Therapies and Tissue engineering, on 17 March 2023, Ghent.

Researchers from UGent, UZ Gent, imec and VIB will present break-through research on topics of gene and cell therapy, and regenerative medicine. Next to scientific and technological innovation, the event will highlight succesful academic-industry partnerships to advance gene and cell therapy programs towards the clinic. Stakeholders will be invited to give newest insights in the rapidly evolving ATMP landscape in Ghent, Belgium and beyond.

We welcome principal investigators, clinicians and senior postdocs from academia as well as industry delegates, policy makers and startups active in the field of life sciences to join our event and partner with us.

What to expect

A half day program presenting a selection of collaborative and translational science programs on hot topics in the ATMP field, including:

  • Session 1: mRNA vaccine development involving successful partnerships with biotech
  • Session 2: Optogenetic gene therapy for epilepsy
  • Session 3: Innovation in CAR-T cell production, evaluation and manufacturing
  • Session 4: Clinical trials for gene and cell therapy

The on-site format provides plenty of opportunities to learn, connect and network with scientists, clinicians, industry innovators and policy makers in the exciting field of ATMP.

About GATE

Regenerative medicine is by nature a multi-disciplinary field, in which innovation management is becoming ever more complex. To meet these increasing challenges, Ghent University, University Hospital Ghent, imec and VIB are joining forces. This led to the foundation of GATE, a virtual institute where researchers and clinicians from various disciplines and expertise work together with innovation professionals to develop faster, more efficient and more market-oriented solutions for regenerative medicine gene therapy, (advanced) cell therapy and tissue regeneration, as well as innovative organ-on-chip technologies for drug development and disease modelling. Our ambition is to cover the complete process from early research to first-in-human clinical trials, realizing the promise of regenerative medicine and advanced therapies.
