ACMG Genetics Academy – Live Webinar

 

Session Description:

This session will review the basics of the preclinical development of a new gene therapy for a rare disorder. The presentation will span the bench to bedside spectrum with a focus on proof-of-concept and preclinical studies needed to initiate a clinical trial.

Target Audience:

This summer webinar series is targeted to genetics professionals in research, lab, and clinical settings, as well nongenetic healthcare professionals caring for patients with rare disease.

 

 Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:

  • Describe key aspects of preclinical studies prior to Investigational New Drug (IND) application
  • Review the key steps in the interaction with the FDA prior to submitting an IND application
  • Explain the relevance of an IND number
