Summit 2023

Join us at the Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy Summit 2023. 

Summit 2023 is an invitation-only event in recognition of ACGT’s 20+ years of advancing research to develop curative cell and gene therapies for cancer.  

This day-long event will bring many of our Research Fellows together with our esteemed ACGT Scientific Advisory Council, Board of Directors, Alliance Partners, and other important thought-leaders in the cell and gene therapy field to engage in a series of panels and discussions designed to forward the development of new life-saving cell and gene therapies focusing on solid tumors.  

ACGT’s alliance of researchers, clinicians, companies, and non-profit partners will have the opportunity to hear from the trailblazers driving clinical advances. Attendees will also participate in working sessions focused on breaking down barriers, enabling collaborations, and expediting breakthroughs.  

We are excited that Summit 2023 also includes attendance at the ACGT Awards Luncheon, featuring oncologist, cancer researcher and Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Siddhartha Mukherjee, MD, as our keynote speaker, and honoring Crystal L. Mackall, MD, of Stanford University, with the Edward Netter Leadership Award. 

Finally, Summit 2023 will include the launch of the ACGT Collaboration Challenge Grant open to those Fellows and alliance members in attendance.   


The cutoff date for registration was February 28, 2023. If you received an invitation but have not registered please contact
