How will cell therapy change in the next five years?

How do you see the field of cell therapy changing in the next five years? 

I believe strongly that the next five years will bring the first significant drug approval. This will be a transformative moment for the field. A lot of players who are sitting on the wings will move in and there will be a big acceleration. Who will benefit from that the most are the organizations and the entities which have spent the difficult, recent years preparing and positioning themselves the best. 

I think we would do well to look around at this point because it will – in a sense – be the calm before the storm. The companies which are working fervently now preparing themselves to be able to take their drugs all the way to commercialization are the ones who are going to step in to the fast lane when the first big approval comes. And as I said, I do think that the next five years is a very realistic timeframe for this to occur.
