The field of gene therapy is changing the face of healthcare. Advances in knowledge from many generations of scientists have led us to a new exciting reality – rather than treating the symptoms of single-gene conditions, we can now deliver lifelong cures.
The UC Davis Gene Therapy Center is leveraging the unique expertise and resources available at UC Davis to work on finding those cures. Genetically linked disorders that can potentially be treated through gene replacement, editing, or augmentation include blood diseases, cancers, neurodevelopmental, neurodegenerative and immune system disorders, and much more.
A gift to the UC Davis Gene Therapy Center supports this effort to help humans and animals live better lives by offering new treatments to complex, but addressable genetic diseases. For more information about our center, research, and facilities, please visit our website.
