Is gene therapy the future?
Newt Gingrich, a former Speaker of the House, thinks so.
He sat down with TheStreet to explain his thoughts on the sector and why investors should pay close attention to the sector.
Here's what he had to say about gene therapy.
"I belong to the school that believes the long run solution to health care is wellness and, and that if you can get cures for these major diseases, nothing will do more to solve the cost of healthcare," he explained.
"Well, I would say, first of all, if you're going to get into a field that is as complex as gene therapy, you ought to go to some experts. You ought to look at things. But I would say if you're just starting...that you need to look to the experts who spent years of their lives dealing with this kind of thing," said Gingrich.
