About the event
Gene therapy allows the replacement or modification of genes in the cells of a patient. The technique has the potential to treat the underlying cause of a range of diseases and, as research progresses, the applications are likely to grow. But what should the limits be? And how do we decide where treatment ends and enhancement begins?
Dr Stephanie Schorge and her team are currently investigating gene therapy as a cure for epilepsy. Join Stephanie to explore current research and discuss where this novel technique is heading in the future.
