Science for Health – by MEDVIA

Vivactis HM3A attended the Science for Health event on November 21st

The Science for Health event was organised by MedVIA and took place at SQUARE Brussel in Belgium. This years topic: Advancing Gene Therapy

Gene therapy could enable patients to live without the need for ongoing treatments or the burden of daily disease management. How are we turning this promise into reality? 

We joined to get the latest insights from local and international experts discussing the current and future treatment modalities, how to address technical or regulatory challenges and build clinical evidence.

Interesting round table about “The value of gene therapy and how to secure access for patients”, Steven Simoens (KU Leuven), Eva Schoeters (RaDiOrg), Dirk Vandermijnsbrugge (Pfizer), Ingrid Maes (Innovigate), Bart Leroy (UZ Gent), and moderated by Ann Van Gysel (MEDVIA)
