CRISPR Continuous to Innovate! Exploring the Future of Cell & Gene Therapy, Industry Leaders Converge at the 2024 GenScript Biotech Global Forum

Published

NANJING, China, Dec. 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The rapid advancement of technology has propelled the field of life sciences into unprecedented growth, constantly expanding our understanding and imagination. Particularly in the field of cellular gene therapy, a series of recent positive developments have been overwhelming.

Recently, the world's first CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing therapy received market approval in the UK. This significant achievement comes 11 years after the invention of the revolutionary CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing tool. It not only plays a crucial role in scientific gene editing research but also opens new avenues for clinical treatment. David Liu, one of the pioneers of gene editing, is set to deliver a keynote speech at the GenScript Biotech Global Forum in San Francisco in January 2024, stating on social media, " a major milestone for science, for medicine, and for patients."

Moreover, there have been major breakthroughs in the field of gene editing. Scientist Feng Zhang and his team, pioneers in the application of CRISPR/Cas9, developed a new algorithm called Fast Locality-Sensitive Hashing-based clustering (FLSHclust), has identified 188 kinds of new rare CRISPR systems in bacterial genomes, encompassing thousands of individual systems, once again shaking the global scientific community!

The diversity and flexibility demonstrated by the CRISPR system reaffirm the vast prospects of CRISPR gene editing. Scientists are intelligently opening this door, and it requires collaboration within the industry to explore and shape the future.

As the field of cellular gene therapy continues to evolve,In what areas will CRISPR technology pioneer innovation?In the vast capital market,How to find the right position, clarify strategic planning, and become an industry leader?What foresight and innovation capabilities should companies possess to achieve long-term success?What opportunities will emerge in the innovation of cellular gene therapy?How to effectively and innovatively develop commercialization without falling into conventional patterns?

GenScript understands the industry's concerns about cellular gene therapy, and this is crucial information we are eager to share. Over the years, GenScript has devoted itself to building communication bridges between stakeholders, facilitating the exchange and integration of the industry and the capital market. At this crucial moment when cellular gene therapy is undergoing disruptive changes, the "2024 GenScript Biotech Global Forum" sets sail once again, inviting you to reunite in San Francisco on January 10, 2024, to discuss the future of the cell & gene industry.
