Learn about successful patient treatment through innovative therapies like CRISPR-Cas9

The Life/2021 nephrology congress in September is rapidly approaching and we are thrilled to share the latest news with you.


We are delighted and honoured to announce our keynote speaker 
Prof. Dr.
Fyodor Urnov
Innovative Genomics Institute at University of Berkeley, USA
CRISPR-Cas9 expert for patient therapies
Prof. Urnov is a specialist in genome editing with CRISPR-Cas9 which has transformed therapeutic advances in kidney care. The impact of gene therapy and immunotherapy already allows for first patient success stories for which Prof. Urnov’s colleagues Jennifer Doudna and Emmanuelle Charpentier received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2020 for their pioneering work on CRISPR-Cas9. Along with such novel therapies, there is an urgent need to make such cures cost-effective and accessible for patients.
Join the session and learn more about the applications of CRISPR-Cas9 in kidney disease and therapies with Prof. Fyodor Urnov as well as Dr. Michael Curtis (President of R&D at eGenesis - project lead in the xenotransplantation program) and Ms. Fiona Loud (Policy Director, Kidney Care UK)
