Therapeutic Genome Editing


Dr. Natalia Gomez-Ospina
Dr. Kiran Musunuru

Advances in the technology of genome editing offer major opportunities in the treatment of genetic disorders, but also raise complex technical and ethical issues. This webinar will explore these considerations both for somatic and germline genome editing and will explore the future research agenda for therapeutic genome editing.

Learning Objectives
  • Describe current technical approaches for genome editing
  • Consider both technical and ethical issues in clinical implementation of genome editing
  • Discuss the research agenda for further development of therapeutic genome editing
