Posted On: Friday, August 12, 2016 Posted By: Florie Borel Tags: In the media

UMassMedNow published an article about the new program project grant that our lab and 4 other labs at UMass Medical School received earlier this week from the NIH-NHLBI. This grant will fund new approaches to gene therapy for alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency. 

“This is a disease that appears treatable by gene therapy, and possibly other breakthrough methods as well,” said Terence R. Flotte, MD,  the Celia and Isaac Haidak Professor of Medical Education, executive deputy chancellor, provost, dean of the School of Medicine and professor of pediatrics and microbiology & physiological systems and the principal investigator on the grant.
