Recording of a Learn and Connect event sponsored by Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Research Institute's Innovation Ecosystem
A major hurdle to bringing novel medical products and devices developed in research laboratories to patients in our hospitals is the FDA approval process.
This FDA Roundtable aimed to jumpstart and centralize efforts among CHOP faculty and staff who struggle with the FDA approval process. This session focused on novel drugs and biologics, and provided time at the end to network and connect with colleagues.
Our panelists played vital roles in CHOP’s efforts to achieve FDA approval of two groundbreaking biologic therapeutics, Kymriah and Luxturna. Kymriah is the first FDA-approved CAR-T therapy, and Luxturna is the first FDA-approved in vivo gene therapy.
This Event took place on May 11, 2022 at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
