Following the keynote speech, a panel discussion themed "From Bench to Bedside" was held with the host of Dr. Wang Wen, Chief Medical Officer of IASO BIO. All the experts had a heated discussion on "clinical needs and early research and development in cell therapy" from different perspectives. To meet clinical needs is always the ultimate purpose for new drug development. Although there are different needs between enterprises, doctors and scientists, these three parties are actually closely connected and should collaborate in the entire period. Experts believe that not only should we pay attention to the novelty and originality of the material basis, we should pay more attention to the clinical value. The basic R&D team must collaborate with first-line clinicians to carry out early R&D based more on clinical needs, and better deliver R&D results to the clinic side to make more patients truly benefit.
