Cell & Gene Therapy Partnering and Deal-Making – Where Now?

Wednesday 22 September 2021, 16.00 – 17.00


Registration is now closed for this event but if you would like to attend, please contact aline@onenucleus.com

One Nucleus is partnering with Taylor Wessing to hold a panel to discuss current trends in cell & gene therapy partnering and deal-making, in particular how these deals differ from those for more traditional modalities.


In this interactive event our panel will share insights on how the unique characteristics of C&GT products and technologies drive different approaches to deal-marking. Topics for the panel will include:

  • Due diligence and deal origination – differences from other modalities?
  • Interesting recent data from Charles River on pace of deal activity, deal type, deal value and product phase compared to mAB deals;
  • How to approach milestones, royalty model and other deal terms?
  • Greater focus on manufacturing process development and scale-up, tech transfer and/or clinical supply
