Catalyst Award


About the Award

The ASGCT Catalyst Award recognizes an ASGCT member or team of professionals who have had an extraordinary impact on the translation of gene and cell therapies. The award is intended to highlight contributions in areas such as biomarker identification or endpoint development, manufacturing and scale-up, policy, or regulatory science, among others. Work in these areas are the advances that drive innovation and catalyze translation of cell and gene therapies to the clinic.
