Our Cell & Gene Therapy industry leadership

Our Cell and Gene Therapy Center of Excellence (CAGT COE) is led by Senior Vice President Chris Learn, Ph.D., PMP. It comprises a cross-functional matrix of teams dedicated to the clinical development of minimally-modified cell therapies, gene-modified cell therapies, gene therapies, gene editing, RNA and ASO assets.
Chris lost his dad to Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) when he was 18, which inspired his pursuit into clinical research and drug development. “I had the opportunity to be part of a program that was developing gene-based cell therapy to treat NHL, which ultimately resulted in a market approval for that therapy. This was extremely fulfilling for me, notably regarding a promise I had made to myself about my dad and doing something to honor his memory.”

Director, Cell & Gene Therapy Center of Excellence

Like many of my colleagues in the field of clinical research, I too draw daily inspiration and motivation from a deeply personal experience. Having witnessed the devastating impact of cancer on my loved ones, including close friends and family members, I am driven to dedicate myself to the pursuit of finding effective cures and treatments, while also helping to make the research process more patient-centered. Their courageous battles have instilled in me an unwavering commitment to helping advance medical research in a way that puts the needs and experiences of patients at the forefront. I firmly believe that by placing the patient at the center of our research efforts, we can better understand their perspectives and develop more meaningful and effective treatments, ultimately leading to improved outcomes and quality of life for those facing similar health challenges.
