Gene-Editing: Therapeutic Strategies for Muscle Disease


Wednesday, September 6, 2017, 7:00pm to 8:00pm


Harvard Divinity School, Sperry Room, Andover Hall, 45 Francis Ave., Cambridge, MA

Guest speaker:                                                    Image for Wagers Sept. 6 seminar
Amy Wagers, PhD

Program of the Harvard Alumni Association. 

Registration and $5.00 fee is required of all, though Harvard students are admitted free of charge.


A leader in the field of stem cell biology, Dr. Amy Wagers has done groundbreaking research to uncover new migratory pathways and signaling networks that regulate the functioning of blood-forming and muscle-forming stem cells. Understanding how these cells function and how to manipulate them could lead to better treatments for a range of diseases including diabetes, anemia, and muscular dystrophy.

Join the Harvard Alumni Association and Professor Wagers for an evening discussion of stem cells, gene-editing, muscle diseases, and the potential therapeutic benefits that stem cell gene editing may have for these diseases.
