      Stem Cell Clonality and Genome Stability Retreat

      6th Stem Cell Clonality and Genome Stability Retreat

      (Formerly Stem Cell Clonality and Genotoxicity Retreat)

      May 15, 2012 (immediately prior to the ASGCT annual meeting)

      Philadelphia Marriott Downtown

      Philadlephia, PA

      ***PLEASE NOTE: The meeting will begin at 8am, with coffee available beginning at 7am and will ajourn at 5:30pm on May 15th.

      The gene therapy field has progressed significantly since the first successes in treating monogenic immunodeficiency diseases. Insertional mutagenesis of integrating vectors led to a rapid development, pre-clinical and now clinical testing of 'safety improved' vectors and to development and utilization of rapid throughput identification of genomic insertion sites in clinical usage. Evolving use of expandable, clonable and transplantable sources of stem cells and the identification of genomic 'safe harbors', site-directed integration and homologous recombination clearly may impact future clinical applications. This meeting brings together international experts discussing state-of-the-art gene transfer and gene therapy clinical applications, new vector approaches, and insertional & genome biology. The meeting is limited in size to 100 participants.

      Speakers: Alessandro Aiuti, Christopher Baum, Juan Bueren, Frederic Bushman, Nathalie Cartier, Toni Cathomen, Marina Cavazzana-Calvo, Cynthia Dunbar, Boris Fehse, GiulianaFerrari, Bobby Gaspar, Manuel Grez, Zsuzsanna Izsvak, Christoph von Kalle, Mark Kay,Hans-Peter Kiem, Punam Malik, Fulvio Mavilio, Eugenio Montini, Luigi Naldini, Art Nienhuis, Sung-Yun Pai, Derek Persons, Matthew Porteus,Raffaele Renella, David Russell, Adrian Thrasher, David Williams

      **Sponsored by the Transatlantic Gene Therapy Consortium; Co-Organized by Christopher Baum, Adrian Thrasher, and David Williams
