At the BIO-Europe Spring Conference in Amsterdam in March 2018, CRA hosted a special program where attendees from biotech, Big Pharma, healthcare provider/payer groups, and patient associations were asked to share their views on pricing strategies for innovative medicine, including cell and gene therapies. More than 60 attendees responded to a series of questions about drug pricing, with a focus on cell and gene therapies, and their responses were captured live through an instantaneous voting system during a panel session.
