Meeting on the Med 2021 | Horizon scanning of cell therapy: the eye and beyond

Jane Lebkowski, PhD, Regenerative Patch Technologies, Portola Valley, CA, describes some of the impactful advances in cell therapy that are helping drive the field forward, including the ability to produce relevant cell types and characterize their functionality and phenotypic properties. Novel technologies and platforms offer the potential to build layers of the retina which could be applied in the treatment of a range of retinal diseases in the future. Continued advances in cell- and tissue-based therapies also hold great potential for rebuilding other organs such as the kidneys and lungs. This interview took place during the Cell & Gene Meeting on the Mediterranean 2021 virtual conference.
