GenScript’s First Gene & Cell Engineering Virtual Summit, Produced by Labroots, Opens July 22, 2021.

The GenScript Gene & Cell Engineering Virtual Summit is being held July 22, 2021 and will feature pioneers pushing the boundaries in gene and cell engineering, providing deep expertise in gene synthesis technologies.

Open to a global audience, this virtual summit is the premier event for geneticists, molecular biologists, and clinical research scientists, with a focus on innovative gene synthesis technologies and gene editing tools that have transformed basic, translational, and biomedical research.

The GenScript Gene & Cell Engineering Virtual Summit will feature a keynote presentation by Alexander Marson, MD, Ph.D., Director, Gladstone-UCSF Institute of Genomic Immunology. His webinar titled, “Reprogramming Human T Cells with CRISPR”, will discuss current approaches for CRISPR genome editing in primary human T cells, review progress toward clinical genome editing with non-viral knockin strategies, and explore the application of genome-wide screens as a discovery platform for enhanced cellular therapies. Additionally, J Joseph Melenhorst, Ph.D., Director, Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy Biomarker Program, will be presenting his research relating to Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR)-engineered T cells during his webinar titled, “Response to Second Generation CAR T Cell Therapy: It Takes (at least) Two to Tango”.

Produced on Labroots’ robust platform, connecting across all desktop and mobile devices, the experience includes a virtual lobby, an auditorium with interactive speaker presentations, and a virtual exhibit hall for participants to explore the latest gene and cell engineering technologies. By attending this event, you can earn 1 Continuing Education Credit per presentation for a maximum of 30 credits.
