Abstract
DATE:  January 9, 2020
TIME:   10:00am PST, 1:00pm EST
 
Genome editing, a mechanism to rewrite DNA sequences, has the potential to create a new generation of precise genetic therapies that can ameliorate or cure genetic disorders. For genome editing to be therapeutic, it must not only produce the desired genetic modifications, but also efficiently target the appropriate cells in the appropriate organs. Ex vivo and in vivo delivery approaches are the main platforms used to achieve modification of target tissues. While ex vivo modification of hematopoietic stem cells is being primarily developed to target genetic diseases of the blood such as hemoglobinopathies and immune deficiencies, it also has great potential to treat non-hematological multi-systemic diseases. In this webinar we will discuss how the hematopoietic system can be engineered using genome editing to produce, secrete, and deliver therapeutic proteins to multiple organs, including the central nervous system. Specifically, we discuss recent data, and provide specific examples, regarding how such an approach can become a therapeutic platform for a large group of genetic diseases caused by deficiencies in lysosomal enzymes. We also review a CRISPR/Cas9-based, good-manufacturing-practice-compatible protocol for modification of hematopoietic stem cells ex vivo. 
 
Learning Objectives:
  • Review the use sgRNA/Cas9 ribonucleoprotein (RNP) and adeno-associated viral vector serotype six (AAV6) delivery of the homologous templates for genome editing of human hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells.
  • Review proof-of-concept studies showing that human genome edited hematopoietic stem cells can correct disease manifestations in multi-systemic, non-hematological diseases.
  • Discuss broader applications of this technology as a mean to deliver therapeutic proteins to multiple organ systems, including the brain.
 
Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
