Tony Cathomen , Felipe Prosper, Ignacio Melero, Paula Rio , Juan Bueren and Raúl Torres to name a few of the the forefront of gene therapy and genome editing for therapeutic purposes in Europe that are presenting in this meeting.
To promote the Action’s mission dr. K. Benabdel lah has been awarded a grant by the GeneHumdi Management Committee to facilitate the dissemination and presentation of the Genome Editing for the treatment of Human disease (GeneHumdi | COST action CA21113) during the Bi-annual Meeting of the Spanish Society of Gene and Cell Therapy. This grant aims to support Dr. Benabdel lah in showcasing the remarkable achievements and advancements of the GeneHumdi initiative to all attendees at the conference.
