Webinar: Gene editing—the precision tool for tomorrow's treatments

An exciting new weapon against incurable diseases is gene editing. Gene editing is being explored as a treatment option for several widespread diseases and has the potential to defend against current and future threats for which there are no effective interventions. In this webinar, scientists relate how they harnessed genome editing technologies in their HIV research and rare inherited disease research. Discussion also includes how you can leverage different genetic analysis tools in your genome editing workflow to get answers faster and with less effort.

Eleonora Maino

Title: CRISPR-mediated modeling and treatment of tandem duplications in rare inherited disorders
Speaker: Eleonora Maino, PhD Candidate, Molecular Genetics Laboratory, Hospital for Sick Children

In this webinar, Eleonora discusses using CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing to model tandem duplication disorders, such as Duchenne muscular dystrophy and MECP2 duplication syndrome, and how a single-sgRNA approach can be used to correct duplication mutations and treat tandem duplication disorders.

Mohamed S. Bouzidi PhD

Title: Single-Cell Inference of CRISPR-Cas9-Mediated Antiviral Gene Editing in HIV-Infected Myeloid Cells
Speaker: Mohamed S. Bouzidi PhD, Postdoctoral Researcher, Pillai Lab, Vitalant Research Institute

In this webinar, Mohamed covers the work he has been doing on targeting HIV provirus and HIV receptors simultaneously using CRISPR-Cas9 and single cell sequencing to evaluate editing efficiency and co-editing occurrences.

Stephen Jackson, PhD
