Interview with Keith Thompson, CEO of the UK Cell Therapy Catapult: Advanced therapies stand poised to change the drug discovery and development paradigm
(November 25, 2015): After years of painstaking research, cell, gene and tissue therapies are turning in unprecedented evidence of efficacy in phase I/II. Unlike the old model, where the sole focus would now be on phase III, companies need to work simultaneously on manufacturing, logistics, pricing and getting the product to the patient, says Keith Thompson.
