Celebrating 25 Years in 2022

Stay Up to Date with Email Updates

The American Society of Gene and Cell Therapy’s (ASGCT) Annual Meeting, celebrating its 25th year in 2022, is the premier event for professionals in gene and cell therapy. The four-day meeting—and one preceding day of Pre-Meeting Workshops—is the best place for people in the field to learn from the latest scientific research, stay up to date on new technologies, and make career-advancing connections with peers.

Originally designed as a venue for academic researchers to share their work, the Annual Meeting has grown to serve a wide community encompassing clinicians, bio-industry development, regulatory agencies, equipment manufacturers, patient advocates, and more.

Registration for the 25th Annual Meeting opens in mid-December and virtual registration will be available through the on-demand period following the conclusion of the live meeting. Visit the Registration page for more information.
