Gene Replacement Therapy for NF2 is starting!
August 1st 2019: NF2 BioSolutions signed a contract in July 2019 to partially fund a NF2 Gene therapy Pilot Pre-Clinical Study at the Abigail Wexner Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital by Dr. Kathrin Meyer, who is serving as the Principal Investigator.
June 26th 2019: Dr. Mueller of the University of Massachusetts Medical School attended NF2 BioSolutions’s NF2 Gene Therapy consortium in Boston on March 29th. Being moved by the impact of NF2, Dr. Mueller decided to start a gene therapy pilot study to determine if his lab’s gene therapy platform could be a good candidate for tackling the NF2 mutation. The advantage of his platform is its ability to silence the mutated gene and then add a healthy one. Dr. Mueller, assisted by Dr. Karin Meijboom, will be financing the development of the gene therapy NF2 vector for the pilot. Once manufactured, it will be tested on NF2 in order to determine efficiency. NF2 BioSolutions will facilitate the collaboration between the NF2 experts and Dr. Mueller’s lab.
This is just the beginning, there is much more to come!!! We need your continuing support as we shine the spotlight on NF2. Our goal is to collaborate with several leading gene therapy labs and share findings as we go to increase our chances of finding a long term solution for NF2.
Take a look at the impressive Mueller lab (the site is not yet updated with his new NF2 focus).
