Recently published research  provides new hope for a potential cure for the devastating cystic fibrosis disease. In the study, a research collaboration demonstrated how they corrected mutations that cause cystic fibrosis in cultured human stem cells using a CRISPR/Cas9 variant technique called prime editing to replace the ‘faulty’ piece of DNA with a healthy […]

Personalized tumour treatments are expensive. This particularly applies to individual cancer therapies based on gene-modified T cells. Currently, they are produced manually or, at best, in a partially automated process. In a collaboration project “ProCell for Patient” two hospitals are currently working with Optima Pharma to develop an automated unit for the decentralized production of […]
The pace of acute therapy and vaccine development for COVID have been dizzying.
