S139: Gene Therapy and Cancer Treatment in Stratosphere Summer 2020 (Jun. 06 - 27, 2020)
Are you curious about current research in gene therapy treatments for cancer and how they work? In this class, we will learn about some genetics, including the importance of telomerase activity in DNA replication. We will also talk about ways of gene editing/silencing (CRISPR and RNAi). We will then explore the difference between these and gene therapy, and how gene therapy is used in cancer treatments. If we have time, we will look at a situation where gene therapy was really successful, to end on a hopeful note!
