Alexander_Fleming_Bld_Sign.jpgThe results from our Multidose Gene Therapy (Wave 1) Trial will be presented at a special event for the CF community at 11:00 on Saturday 30 May at the Alexander Fleming Building, Imperial College, London (address and directions below).

This event will also be live-streamed for you to watch online, and there will be a simultaneous video link to the University of Edinburgh where the CF community is also warmly invited to attend with refreshments provided (address and directions below).

The events on Saturday 30 May are being organised in order to share the findings with as many of the CF community as soon as possible. This will be followed by a question and answer session, those watching via the live-streams will also be able to ask questions.

All are warmly welcome but the number of places at the event are limited, so please register by visiting http://gtcresults.eventbrite.co.uk. For cross-infection reasons, we request that people with CF do not attend the events in person.

You do not need to register to view the live stream - we will provide a link when it becomes available. This should work on all internet browsers although it is recommended you use the most recent version of the Google Chrome browser and Adobe Flash for best performance.
