Gene therapy is finally enjoying success in many clinical trials around the world. Here at OHSU, we have several laboratories doing excellent research in this area, but our efforts are dispersed and could benefit from more integration. In order to build and enhance our Gene Therapy Community we are holding a half-day symposium that includes:

  • Keynote address by Mark Kay, M.D., Ph.D.
  • Research vignettes from OHSU gene therapy leaders
  • Poster session and reception with wine, beer and hors d’oeuvres

Register for the symposium or submit a poster presentation.

Registration deadline is Wednesday, November 6. Please share information about this event with trainees and other members of your research group and collaborators. Both faculty and trainee posters are welcome!

This event is sponsored by the Department of Pediatrics and the Papé Family Pediatric Research Institute. Have questions or need more information? Contact Leslie Lublink.
