In recent decades, science has come to understand a lot about the human body. Particularly, our genetics. This has unlocked promising options for doctors and patients to treat some of the most debilitating diseases and is changing the future of healthcare. Scientists are looking for answers where biology, chemistry and data science meet.
Cell and gene therapies offer hope to millions of people living with genetic and some degenerative diseases like Parkinson´s and Pompe disease. These new treatment options are not only a paradigm shift for some genetic and degenerative diseases but could change the course of treating cardiac events like a heart attack. They don’t just treat symptoms. They help the body repair itself from within.
