Genetic manipulation – potential and challenges in therapy

Genetic manipulation – potential and
challenges in therapy

Thursday 10th September 2020, 15.00-17.30, Benzon Auditorium
Department of Pharmacy, University of Copenhagen
Universitetsparken 2, 2100 Copenhagen Ø

Genetic manipulation has for many years been recognized as an approach to achieve better therapy
for serious and debilitating diseases. With the discovery of the CRISPR/cas technology, efforts in this
field took a major leap. Another efficient strategy includes the use of viral vectors for delivery of gene
therapies. This meeting will provide an introduction to the CRISPR/cas technology and its potential in
future therapies as well as a talk on how to get viral gene therapies from bench to bedside. Finally,
ethical considerations arising with the introduction of gene therapies will be covered.
