Pillars of Advocacy

Defining Value

Gene and cell therapy will have a financial impact on patients, providers, and payers. ASGCT is committed to understanding that impact and educating decision-makers engaged in developing policies that influence patient access to treatments.

Suppporting Research

The benefits gene and cell therapy deliver to patients are cultivated and sustained through federally funded research programs and policies that support investment. ASGCT supports the effort to bring new therapies from the lab to the public.

Promoting Awareness

As the promise of gene and cell therapy becomes a reality, ASGCT is leading the conversation among policy makers by encouraging open and thorough discussion. The Society is intent on yielding thoughtful and well-informed health policies.
