The BSGCT Public and Patient Engagement Subcommittee organise this series of talks designed to provide a lay introduction and background to the rapidly developing world of gene and cell therapy.
Wednesday 15th February, 18:30 GMT
Dr Joanne Ng, University College London
Dr Joanne Ng is a gene therapy researcher at University College London. She trained as paediatric neurologist with an interest in movement disorders. However the lack of impactful treatments for these patients was disheartening and potential application of gene therapy is highly compelling especially with recent regulatory approval of Upstaza. Dr Ng will provide an overview of neurotransmitter related paediatric movement disorders and the application of gene therapy for some of these disorders.
