Natasha Davie, one of our PhD students in Oxford presented a different kind of poster at the 2014 British Society for Gene and Cell Therapy Conference in London.

Our other PhD students have lab based research projects directly or indirectly aligned with the Consortium's core aims but Natasha is different because her PhD is funded by the SENS Research Foundation and her PhD is being jointly run with the  Centre for the Advancement of Sustainable Medical Innovation (CASMI). CASMI is a partnership between Oxford University and UCL, created to develop new models for medical innovation.

Natasha is researching gene therapy as a whole and trying to gain an understanding as to why greater progress has not been made with this technology to date.

In her poster presentation she compares the development of gene therapy now,  with that of bone marrow transplantation in the 1960s-1980s.
