Find out why we are so excited about cell and gene therapy!
- Cell & gene therapy is central to a range of new drugs in which modified cells are able to treat and potentially cure currently untreatable diseases and disorders
- Many diseases are due to problems in the genes (DNA) within cells, or because cells stop working properly
- By modifying or replacing the problem cell population, exciting new treatments are being discovered
On 6th December, we'd like to introduce you to this fascinating arena of medicine and discuss:
- The transformative impact of these treatments
- Manufacturing challenges
- Career opportunities created by these developments
- And hear from a surgeon who has used cell & gene therapy to successfully treat over 600 patients!
The event runs from 17.30 to 20.30 and is aimed at GCSE and A-level students interested in a career in science however absolutely everyone is welcome!
Attendance is FREE, including refreshments, but registration is required please.
The Chancellor's Building carpark is free of charge after 5pm. For directions and a map of the campus, please click here.
