This past year was a watershed in terms of the amount of money raised by gene and cell therapy companies, as well as the vote of confidence in the sector from large pharma and large-cap biotech companies, visible in the record number of investments and high-value corporate partnerships. We recognize, however, that the financing environment has changed significantly since Q3 2015 and the greatest need now is to continue to show steady, meaningful clinical progress in areas of significant unmet medical need.
