Apic Bio, Inc. today announced the formation of its Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) which includes internationally recognized gene therapy experts.
A team of University of Florida Health researchers is using an established gene therapy technique to quickly develop a COVID-19 vaccine that could be tested in humans later this year.
Gene therapy is finally poised to revolutionize the treatment of many diseases, but the nascent field is facing challenges — notably in manufacturing — that could limit its early success, experts tell MedPage Today.
The Jordan Ogman TECPR2 Research & Development Fund supports the research efforts at the University of Florida Powell Gene Therapy Center specifically for TECPR2.
UF researchers’ groundbreaking work from 1980s leads to new treatment for debilitating neuromuscular disease…
A glance around the walls of Barry J. Byrne’s office reveals a lot about the pediatric cardiologist who runs the Powell Gene Therapy Center at the University of Florida (UF).
Researchers at the University of Florida have received a grant for the development of a gene therapy program aimed at treating Friedreich’s ataxia, a progressive, debilitating and life-shortening neuromuscular disorder, from the Italian patient advocacy group GoFAR.
Agilis Biotherapeutics has been awarded a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement by National Center for Accelerating Translational Sciences (NCATS) to facilitate development of the company’s gene-therapy candidate for aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase (AADC) deficiency.
MERTK is an essential component of the signaling network that controls phagocytosis in retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), the loss of which results in photoreceptor degeneration. Previous proof-of-concept studies have demonstrated the efficacy of gene therapy using human MERTK (hMERTK) packaged into adeno-associated virus (AAV2) in treating RCS rats and mice…
