The 18th American Society of Gene & Cell Therapy Conference takes place in New Orleans next month (13 to 16 May). The Conference has become the main global event for the gene therapy community with around 2500 scientists and clinicians attending. A small group of Consortium scientists are heading out to represent us.
They will be presenting four abstracts covering various aspects of our work. Dr Steve Hyde will present a talk on our large scale production of lentiviral vectors. Dr Kamila Patel will present a poster on a new area for us, using our lentiviral platform to express FVIII in the lung as a potential treatment for haemophilia.
Two of our PhD students will also be presenting posters. Mike Paul-Smith will be presenting his work of alpha-1-antitrypsin gene therapy and Natasha Davie will present her ongoing work looking at the barriers to successful translation of academic research.
The four abstracts can be viewed here and we will add the pdfs when they become available:-
