 Session Abstract – PMWC 2022 Silicon Valley

Track 7 - June 28 9.30 A.M.-9.45 A.M.,Track 7 - June 29 3.30 P.M.-3.45 P.M.,Track 7 - June 30 1.00 P.M.-1.15 P.M.

The PMWC 2022 Emerging Therapeutics Showcase will provide a 15-minute time slot for selected companies and researchers in the CRISPR, Cell and Gene Therapy fields. Major advancements in safer cell- and gene-level editing technologies are bringing us closer toward cures for life-threatening disorders, from cancer to HIV to Huntington’s disease. Cell therapy, in which cellular material such as T cells capable of fighting cancer cells, is injected into a patient, has been demonstrated safe and effective. The popular new CRISPR tool that has been used to edit the genetic code of nearly any organism will have an enormous impact on human health. More than a dozen clinical trials employing CRISPR on human cells are already underway.
