Advances in Gene Therapy – 2024 Update

Sponsored by the Therapeutics Committee 


In this highly anticipated webinar, we build upon the foundational concepts presented in the 2022 Summer Gene Therapy Webinar, offering crucial updates and in-depth discussions on the latest advancements in the field. Join us for this informative and engaging event to stay updated on the latest in gene therapy and its profound implications for the future of genetic medicine.

 

Target Audience: This webinar is designed for trainees, medical geneticists, biochemical geneticists,

neurologists, and laboratory geneticists who are eager to stay at the forefront of gene therapy advancements.

 

 

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

 

  • Expand Knowledge on CRISPR and Gene Replacement Therapy: Provide comprehensive updates on the latest developments in CRISPR technology and gene replacement therapy, focusing on how these innovations are shaping the future of genetic medicine.
  • Review New Pediatric Neurogenetic Therapies: Examine recently approved gene therapies for pediatric neurogenetic conditions such as Metachromatic Leukodystrophy (MLD), Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), and X-linked Adrenoleukodystrophy (XALD). Discuss their clinical applications, efficacy, and impact on patient outcomes.
  • Discuss Gene Therapy for Sickle Cell Disease: Delve into the specifics of gene therapy for sickle cell disease, exploring the underlying mechanisms and therapeutic potential. Highlight case studies and clinical trial results to illustrate the transformative effects of these treatments.
  • Analyze Financial and Ethical Considerations: Address the economic aspects and ethical implications of gene therapy. Evaluate the cost-effectiveness, accessibility, and ethical challenges associated with these advanced therapies to foster informed decision-making among healthcare professionals and patients.
