Continuing Conversations With the Speakers sessions allow for informal discussions with Scientific Program session speakers that will give interested individuals, especially trainees and junior investigators, increased accessibility both to information on the topic and to the opinions of experts in those fields. The dynamic nature of these sessions, whose format is an interactive discussion for a limited audience on a first-come, first-served basis, is meant to provide an increased opportunity for scientific peers to form collaborations and partnerships. Attendees should come prepared to actively participate in the discussions.
Genome Editing for Transplantation and Cellular Therapies
Join Drs. Zhang, Ferrari, and Lim to continue discussions on the basic biology of genome editing, approaches to incorporate such editing into transplant and other cellular therapy settings, and efforts to use editing techniques to create new methods that can enhance efficacy and safety of such therapies. This Continuing Conversations With the Speakers session complements the Scientific Program session on Genome Editing for Transplantation and Cellular Therapies and provides an opportunity for scientific peers to form collaborations and partnerships.
