Public Policy Projects (PPP) is delighted to announce its partnership with the University of Birmingham and Birmingham Health Partners on the PPP 2022 Cell & Gene Therapies Programme.


Public Policy Projects partners with Birmingham Health Partners to examine future of Gene and Cell Therapy innovation in the UK

The partnership forms part of PPP’s Disease Diagnosis and Treatment Commission, and following on from the publication of PPP’s ‘Advanced Treatments–Gene and Cell Therapies’ report in early 2022.

The programme brings together key leaders across life sciences to ensure a more inclusive, integrated approach to infrastructure and skills to accelerate the success of advanced therapies across all regions of the UK.

This will examine how the UK can cement itself as a global leader in the research, development and delivery of gene and cell therapies. This directly supports the government’s Life Sciences Vision and Levelling Up agendas, and ties into the ‘Innovation Nation’ and ‘Life Sciences Superpower’ ambitions.
