2018 Autumn Conference

Genome editing for gene and cell therapy. Technologies, models and translation.

The 1-day conference on Friday 23rd November 2018 gave attendees an overview about the successes, challenges and areas for future development. This is clearly an area of broad interest and with many applications in the context of gene and cell therapy, and we were thrilled to welcome key national and international speakers.
