Overview

The ASGCT Patient Education Program was initatied in January 2018 with the goal of making accurate, reliable, and accessible information about gene and cell therapies available to patients and the public.

The American Society of Gene and Cell Therapy (ASGCT) is a professional membership organization for scientists, physicians, patient advocates, and other professionals in gene and cell therapy, working in settings such as universities, hospitals, and biotechnology companies. A crucial priority for the Society is to be a trusted source of information on the science, technology, and use of gene and cell therapy. A key part of this goal is to provide timely, accurate, and responsible information about gene and cell therapy to patients and their families through this Patient Education Program.

ASGCT collaborates with patient advocacy groups to make sure the information here is clear and useful to patients and their families. And the members of the ASGCT Patient Outreach Committee share their expertise in the field to provide scientific accuracy.  

Please direct any questions or comments to Ali Kujawski, Patient Outreach Manager.
