Cell and Gene Therapies
12:00 p.m.–1:00 p.m. EST

Mergers & acquisitions (M&A) leaders from across the industry will discuss the current state of biopharma and medtech dealmaking. For biopharma, with the power of new technologies, from antibody drug conjugates in oncology to RNA-based vaccines, these new innovations sparked many of 2020’s most notable deals and are sure to be important in the future. For medtech, with global hospital utilizations continuing to improve month over month and (hopefully) more visibility into 2021 operating results, the medtech M&A market could be poised for a decent rebound and increase going into 2021.

We will also discuss, in a separate panel of cell and gene therapy stakeholders from life sciences, health care, payor, technology and other collaborators, how the future of the CGT industry is evolving to more digitally enhanced business models with collaboration and information sharing at the center of its success.
