    Gene therapy is now a reality in the clinic with additional products working toward regulatory approval. Advances in gene editing are expanding the boundaries of what was previously thought possible for gene therapy on somatic cells. However, challenges remain in translating scientific advances into clinical progress. This session will discuss/review recent advances in the field, discuss the existing regulatory framework, and provide perspectives from several different sponsors developing products.
    Learning Objective : Identify recent advances in the field of gene therapy; Discuss the existing regulatory framework.
