Apply to attend the Impact.tech Seminar: "Genome editing & gene therapy" in San Francisco
Our deep-dive seminars are designed to give a quick overview of the state of science, costs of scaling, and players already in the field -- institutions, startups, investors, and corporates. Each seminar last 3 hours (5pm-8pm) and are invite-only. We get a very curated group of 15-20 individuals with practical, near-term interest in the field. Anyone can apply through forms linked below. Seminars have tiered pricing, allowing participants to pay according to their abilities. We charge between $25 - $85, which goes towards the costs of the seminar. We're aiming at a healthy mix of entrepreneurs, scientists and investors at each of our events.

New technologies for genome editing and gene therapy have placed control of our own genetic code within reach of humankind. With new tools it becomes possible to cure genetic diseases, to live healthier, longer and happier lives, and to enhance human capabilities. How can we accomplish this? And what should we as a species do with these new abilities?

During this seminar, we will cover the experiments and inventions that led to the development of these remarkable new tools and technologies. We will learn the history of how genome engineering tools, including CRISPR, and delivery technology, including AAV capsids, were created in their modern form. We’ll explore how genome editing and gene therapy technologies are giving individuals control over their own genomes, focusing on the treatment of genetic diseases. We will describe major companies and emerging trends in the gene therapy industry. Finally, we will discuss how and where new discoveries, including accelerated algorithms for genetic engineering, will lead us in the near and distant future.

Space for Impact.tech seminars is extremely limited, thus we will try to give access to those that demonstrate a real interest in the topic and the ability to make an impact in the topic after the seminar. Please fill in as much info as you think is relevant for us to make the best attendee choices. We will get back to you on the next available time.

If you are waiting to enter this sector as an entrepreneur, researcher, or investor, now is the time to jump in!
