SCI's Biotechnology Group in partnership with the University of Westminster

University of Westminster

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.

Synopsis
Delivery of therapeutic gene medicines is a fundamental problem that hinders the developmental pipeline of many translational programmes. Viral vectors and antisense oligonucleotides are both at the forefront of therapeutic programmes for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. The presentation will focus on (i) approaches to delivery full length dystrophin; a large gene cargo and (ii) optimising the delivery of antisense oligonucleotide to restore dystophin expression.
