Help Cure The Future

Recent years have shown some great results for Cell & Gene research.

In 2017, FDA approved the first CAR-T Cell & Gene Treatments in the US

– and our Haemophilia trials in Australia were a groundbreaking success,

so it all looks very positive for the future of Cell & Gene Therapy.

But there’s more research to be done to perfect a cure

for the thousands of diseases we can inherit from our family.

Help us build on the progress so far – and let’s work towards a healthier future for all our families.

Why not replace an inherited ‘disease-causing’ gene, with a normal version of the gene…
