We are pleased to invite you and any interested colleagues to attend our inaugural ‘Medicine at the Crick’ event, entitled “Gene and Gene-Editing Therapy: A new challenge and opportunity in Clinical Medicine”, to be held on Thursday 28 June 2018, 2.30pm-7pm, at the Francis Crick Institute, London.
Our new ‘Medicine at the Crick‘ event series aims to showcase major advances in biomedical science and raise awareness of the medical implications of major scientific advances amongst the Crick and wider UK biomedical community.
The format is a series of short talks, followed by a keynote lecture and a panel discussion. We chose the theme of gene therapy and gene editing to launch the series. The event will be led by Professor Robin Lovell-Badge from the Crick and the keynote lecture will be given by Professor Matthew Porteus from Stanford University. Other speakers and panellists include Dr Claire Booth (UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health), Professor Sarah Tabrizi (UCL Institute of Neurology), Dr Sarah Chan (University of Edinburgh) and Nick Meade (Genetic Alliance UK).
