Haematopoietic Stem Cell Gene Therapy For Severe Monogenic Disorders and Potential Beyond Rare Disease
The talk will demonstrate how gene-corrected HSCs can address a variety of disease states across multiple organ systems, and present emerging clinical data in severe immune deficiency disorders, MLD and other neurometabolic diseases which demonstrate proof of concept for the HSC gene therapy approach. The talk will also outline some of the exciting new research programs the Discovery Team are conducting within the CSCRM, aimed at harnessing the potential for HSC gene therapy to address unmet medical needs for more prevalent larger disease indications.
