Program overview:
Will gene therapy become a reality in your lifetime? We have heard about gene therapy for decades, often with the promise of success. Modulating gene expression in vivo instead of undergoing surgery or taking drugs has been touted and doubted as the future of fighting diseases, but the tides have ebbed and flowed with many successes and failures.
