Cell and Gene Therapy (CGT) is a major breakthrough in medical science. The human genome was sequenced only 16 years ago, yet the website Centerwatch reports that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration expects to receive some 200 gene and cell therapy investigational drug applications  in the next two years. According to the National Cell Manufacturing Consortium, this space will grow at an annual rate of more than 40% in the next 10 years. CGT companies are finding robust, repeatable and scalable ways to manufacture these life-saving products and tests to ensure they are safe and effective therapies. Today, as demand exceeds supply, finding the right talent is key to evolving and expanding this exciting, life-changing industry.

Having left on a flight from Dublin Airport headed to JFK Airport in September to take up my new role  running IDA Irelands U.S. operation, I knew that New York would look different but it was still a bit unreal to see the normally bustling terminals so quiet, streets so sparsely populated and even the taxi drivers subdued.

In a recent report published by Accenture, entitled Does Digital leadership in Banking really matter?, links were established between the digital maturity of a bank and its market valuation. The essence of the argument is that banks who successfully digitalise their data enjoy greater efficiencies that lead to lower costs as a percentage of revenue, which leads to a higher market valuation. Increasingly, banks and other financial services firms are turning to blockchain technology as a means of storing and transferring data in order to increase transparency, lower costs and accelerate the speed at which it is transferred.
