The European Society for Gene and Cell Therapy seeks to honour impacting, significant and lasting contributions to the field of gene and cell therapy. We have devised an award structure which we hope will acknowledge achievements at student level all the way to eminence in longer-standing careers.

We feel passionately that the dissemination of education is vital to the continued growth of the field, including areas such as mentoring, public education, science communication, and presentation of content. We are therefore adding awards to our existing panel which are designed to appreciate and further work in these fields.
