The Alliance for Regenerative Medicine (ARM) and MEP Dr. Stelios Kympouropoulos held an event on November 29 at the European Parliament to highlight concerning trends for advanced therapy medicinal product (ATMP) developers, clinical trials, and investment in the European Union (EU).
At the event, ARM and many speakers emphasized the EU can reverse its declining competitiveness and ensure patient access to transformative treatments if it modernizes its policy and regulatory framework to reflect the distinct promise of cell and gene therapies as the future of medicine.
