Pharma’s big bet on cell and gene therapy

In the ever-evolving landscape of biotechnology and pharmaceuticals, one sector has emerged as particularly promising in the quest to combat previously untreatable diseases: cell and gene therapy. Half a century after scientists proposed the idea of modifying defective genes to treat diseases with a genetic root, the approach is beginning to bear fruit.

Pharma's big bet on cell and gene therapyBiopharma Dealmakers—a Nature publication—reports that, to date, the FDA has approved 31 cell and gene therapies, ten of which are targeting oncology indications. While these ground-breaking cell and gene therapy technologies have the potential to revolutionize medicine, the journey from laboratory to market is fraught with complexity, and subsequently, effective dealmaking remains crucial. Biopharma Dealmakers reveals that 2023 saw 246 partnership deals focused on cell and gene therapy programs—with the top transactions reaching a potential value of $16.8 billion.
