Let’s Talk Gene Therapy Research With Dr. Mary Sunderland & Dr. Chad Andrews (VIDEO)
On the first Tuesday of every month, Fighting Blindness Canada sends out eNews, our e-newsletter featuring the latest and most exciting research breakthroughs.
Soon after each eNews, our very own Director of Research and Education, Dr. Mary Sunderland, takes to our Facebook page to do a live broadcast discussion of the articles featured in the e-newsletter, and to answer your questions.
Last week, we sent out an eNews featuring the following three stories:
- Experimental Gene Therapy Completes Critical Regulatory Step
- Will Gene Therapies Win the Race to Restore Sight?
- Clinical Trial Updates: Gene Therapy
Take a quick read of each, and then watch a replay of Dr. Mary Sunderland’s latest live broadcast in which she and our Research & Education Officer, Dr. Chad Andrews, discussed these stories in full:
