News: New Gene Therapy Shows Promise For Patients With Sickle Cell Disease
An experimental and innovative type of gene therapy is being used to attempt to cure sickle cell anemia. The director of the National Institutes of Health says the results of an NIH clinical trial on a gene therapy for sickle cell anemia "looks like a cure" for the painful and often deadly genetic disease that affects 100,000 Americans, with nearly all being African Americans. 60 Minutes follows the trial for more than a year, focusing on a Florida woman who now appears to be rid of sickle cell anemia. Dr. Jon LaPook's report will be broadcast on 60 Minutes, Sunday, March 10 at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.

Conference: CAR-T Congress Boston USA
The fourth annual CAR-T congress USA (April 16-17, Boston) is bringing together the leading pharmaceutical companies, the disruptive biotechs and pioneering academic institutions to assess emerging novel data and tackle the current challenges including antigen discovery, manufacturing scalability and efficacy.

Join discussions with Dr Alessandro Riva, Dr Christina Coughlin and Dr Leonard Lichtenfeld to determine how we avoid cheaper and more potent biologics hindering the progress of CAR-T, how we effectively edit T cells at scale, and how the industry is pushing for patient access to accelerate your CAR-T pipelines.
