Room 259A, Level 2

Genome editing is set to revolutionize the practice of medicine. How does it work? How does it differ from gene therapy? In this session, we’ll provide the scientific background required to understand this technology and explain how both Zinc Finger Nuclease and CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing work. We’ll discuss ongoing genome editing clinical trials and preview where this technology is headed. This session is specifically designed for the non-scientist.
