Responsible Use of Technology

ASGCT has made it a priority to support dialogue and exchange of ideas as new gene and cell therapy technologies prompt new questions about their use.

ASGCT–FDA Liaison Meeting

ASGCT meets annually with FDA staff in the Office of Tissues and Advanced Therapies (OTAT) to share new developments, highlight ongoing challenges, and recommend solutions for the CGT field.  

Patient Access Priorities

Patient Access Overview

Since the surge in gene and cell therapy approvals and development, ASGCT has advocated for policies that support patient access to these products in a variety of ways.

Genetic Screening & Testing

To obtain access to, and maximal benefit from, potentially life-altering approved gene therapies, diagnosing patients as early as possible is critical. ASGCT advocates to federal policymakers to support access to genetic testing and screening.

Payment Policy

ASGCT supports payment policies that facilitate patient access to approved gene and cell therapies, including full coverage of FDA-labeled indications, maximal reimbursement of providers, and the use of innovative payment mechanisms.

Clinical Trials Finder
