Event description

Description

There is presently a revolution in cell biology, whereby genomes can be edited and engineered with new tools such as CRISPR/Cas9, allowing researchers to answer fundamental questions in health and disease, but also look towards curing disease by eliminating mutations in vivo.

Please be warmly invited by the Genome Engineering and Maintenance Network (GEMnet) to attend a free workshop at Brunel University London showcasing interesting projects that are using genome engineering.

Refreshments included.
