Cell & Gene Congressional Fly-In

ARM’s annual Congressional Fly-In was held on June 7-8, 2022. ARM members came together to represent the cell and gene therapy sector to policymakers on Capitol Hill. We returned to in-person meetings to give our members the opportunity to share the sector’s promise and priorities with the Representatives and Senators who represent your districts and states. Your voices were critical to ensuring that policymakers understand the unique nature of these therapies and the policies needed to deliver them to patients.
