Gene and stem cell therapies:  Correcting nature's spelling mistakes

We are delighted to continue our UCL Medical Sciences Lecture Series throughout 2021.  We believe that science can save the world, so we’ve designed these lectures to inspire year 11 and 12 students and engage them with the fascinating world of medical science.
Join us on the 20th April at 17:00 (UK Time) for a free talk and Q&A with UCL's Emma Morris, Professor of Clinical Cell and Gene Therapy, UCL Institute of Immunity & Transplantation, on Gene and stem cell therapies: Correcting nature's spelling mistakes.
In this talk, Emma explains how doctors and scientists can use new gene therapy and gene editing methods to treat rare inherited diseases.
