Gene Editing @ 4BIO


This 2-day Congress will focus on the cutting-edge technologies transforming the field of gene editing today and consider the best strategies for implementing new methods across the field of clinical research, now and for the future. With CRISPR/Cas9 revolutionising the field, this conference will examine how to optimise the delivery of such technology, whilst also considering the role of TALENs, ZFNs, and other gene editing technologies moving forward. In addition, two-panel discussions will explore in-depth the challenges being faced in gene editing today, such as how to minimise off-target effects and mutations for the safe and effective delivery of CRISPR/Cas9 technology. Ethical and regulatory challenges will also be discussed, with leading experts offering their perspectives on current legislation, and how to navigate ethical concerns in light of the growing scope and scale of genome engineering. This conference will, therefore, provide an opportunity for different disciplines to learn from each other, in terms of how to utilise gene editing technologies for applications across clinical research as a whole.

With similar and shared methods and applications across the four main themes of the meeting, 4Bio Europe will provide a multi-disciplinary forum in which to discover crossover in your research, attend the latest cutting-edge talks that appeal to you most, and also network with your peers and discover solutions to the whole spectrum of your research all in one location.
