IDEAS AND KNOWLEDGE TO INSPIRE YOUR INVESTMENTS THINKING
4 March 2021
Genetic technology and the road ahead
If you think advancements in gene technology are only for rare diseases or are relegated to the future, think again. The first two Covid vaccines to receive approvals are using mRNA technology, which is a new breed of vaccines. This technology enabled scientists to generate a vaccine candidate within 48 hours of having the Covid genetic sequence.
We expect that gene therapy and other genetic technologies will drive seismic shifts across the entire healthcare landscape over the next decade, bringing us to a period of Biotech 2.0, where drugs are far more efficacious and convenient.
