Using gene therapy for the treatment and prevention of disease on a genetic level has not yet reached its full potential.
One of the major challenges in using in vivo gene therapy is finding efficient and stable ways to introduce genes into target cells. As more efforts are focused on developing the non-viral gene transfer system, signifcant progress has been made in the area of targeted gene delivery. For example, Nanometric particles are being developed to transfer genes specifically to blood vessels and to target cells in vivo. Physical stimuli such as electroporation or using magnetic force are being optimized to enhance the gene transfer.

This 2nd annual conference addresses a variety of approaches to overcome technical hurdles to optimize and adapt gene delivery systems for specific purposes. The state-of-the-art knowledge will be presented on such topics such as:

DNA Delivery
Synthetic Gene Transfer
Targeted Gene Delivery
In Vivo Applications
Stability of DNA Particles
Improving Gene Potency
Lipid Based Gene Delivery Platforms

This is a great opportunity to find out what the major players in the area of non - viral gene delivery are working on. Meet this international group of experts and take advantage of their insights on how to work towards the full potential of human gene therapy.
