Advances in gene therapy have propelled the field into the clinical realm, and new medical treatment options are beginning to offer help in neurological diseases long thought to be incurable.
In this webinar on July 12, select faculty from the 2017 Neurobiology of Disease Workshop will continue the discussion on:
- Gene targeted therapies for spinal muscular atrophy.
- Gene addition in hematopoietic stem-cells for leukodystrophies.
- Adeno-associated virus gene delivery for neurological disease.
