The FDA's Role in Gene Therapy

The third webinar explores regulatory pathways for gene therapies, how gene therapies are deemed safe, and more.

Understanding the Gene Therapy Process and Aftercare

The fourth webinar covers how patients are identified as candidates for gene therapy, who may be on a gene therapy treatment team, how long the procedure takes, and what to expect during recovery and longer term follow up.

Life After Gene Therapy

During the fifth and final webinar in the series, participants hear from Charles Hough, who was diagnosed with sickle cell disease when he was two years old, and Nicole Almeida, who found out her son had SMA when she was five months pregnant.
