“Gene Therapy: The Future is Now” will be discussed at the annual Rare Disease Symposium at the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine. This year's event will be held virtually.

This symposium is free and open to the public, but registration is required. 

“Rare Disease Day is a global event that raises awareness of over 7,000 rare diseases,” said Carolyn Macica, associate professor of medical sciences at Quinnipiac and chair/coordinator and faculty adviser for the program. “This symposium, which Quinnipiac Netter has hosted since 2015, provides an opportunity for patients, family members, clinicians and researchers to share their stories, research and insights into the development of novel therapeutics. Our mission is to promote inter-professional healthcare education and awareness of and advocacy for the rare disease community.”

Dr. Phil Boiselle, dean of the School of Medicine, will welcome the audience.
