Webinar: CRISPR/Cas9 Cell Therapeutics – The Next Generation of Cures

Date: 26 October 2016 Location: Online event City: Online event Country: Online event

The discovery of CRIPSR/Cas9 as simple and effective tool for targeted modification of cells has opened up new possibilities for gene or cell therapies. We will discuss strategies for using CRIPSR/Cas9 for curing genetic diseases, and the impact on next generation disease model systems and drug screening.
