Welcome to our gene therapy portal
The Gene Therapy Review is the web resource for patients and professionals interested in cell and gene therapy. Founded in 2008, the aim of the site is to be an information resource for basic and clinical research in the fields of gene therapy, cell therapy, and genetic vaccines, and to serve as a network in the exchange of information and news related to this arena. We welcome contributions from researchers and clinicians alike with a view in increase awareness in this vastly growing sector.
At present the Gene Therapy Review comprises the following features:
Gene Therapy News: All the breaking news in the gene therapy arena can be found in our news pages. You can read how the latest research will likely impact on the field in analysis. For those seeking employment in the sector, we have established a job bulletin board, where academics are invited to advertise for free.
Gene Therapy Research: We provide links to the home pages of all the academic research groups devoted to human genetics, gene therapy and stem cell research. In the companies section we detail the status of private sector DNA research. You can also follow their progress in our literature section where all the latest genetic engineering articles are listed
Gene Therapy Companies: We review the companies that are developing new gene transfer technologies and list the service providers that offer contract manufacturing or contract research to the field. Information on genetic disorders, cancer and infectious disease (current targets of gene therapy research) is also provided, with links to further reading on each topic.
Gene Therapy Technology: Our gene vector pages to learn more about gene transfer into human cells. We describe all the current techniques used for gene delivery. Our technical pages also serve as a source for all commerical gene transfer vectors. These pages have links to plasmid maps, DNA sequences and manuals.
Gene Therapy Literature: Our literature section contains analysis of the latest articles published in the leading gene therapy journals. You can also search pubmed from this section. Activities of the various gene therapy societies are listed and we provide a calender of all the annual international scientific congresses focussing on human genetics.
We hope you find our site useful and encourage you to leave comments as to how we can improve.
