Gene therapy is a powerful and innovative approach for patients using molecular biology tools to engineer genetic materials. This revolutionary therapy holds promise for treating a wide range of diseases, from rare genetic disorders to neurodegenerative diseases. Our team is developing gene therapy trials for FTD/ALS and multiple types of gene therapy vectors and delivery strategies. We are also involved in regulatory and operational challenges of gene therapy trials, including early discovery, vector science, and pre-clinical studies. We have a strong Industry partnership with King’s College London spinout company AviadoBio. As I am a co-founder of the AviadoBio (vice president and Head of discovery), our lab is developing transformative medicines with industry partners for patients with debilitating and life-threatening neurodegenerative disorders.
