Clinical Development Committee

The Clinical Development Committee is newly established to help navigate evolving challenges and opportunities across the clinical development continuum driven by advancements in medical innovation and data science technologies. Its initial focus will be in the area of cell and gene therapy (CGT). The Committee will serve to 1) provide an educational platform to address considerations in the planning and execution of clinical development strategies, 2) identify opportunities to support the clinical research infrastructure within New Jersey’s life sciences ecosystem, and 3) convene critical stakeholders to share insights and lessons learned. Committee Members will plan and execute an event.
