Cell & Gene Therapy
New cell and gene therapies are now available for patients, some after decades of research. The culmination of these efforts will be novel treatments, and perhaps ultimately cures, for devastating and intractable illnesses. Greenleaf assists sponsors by optimizing FDA interactions and submissions to support development, manufacturing, quality, compliance, and regulatory review.
