On Thursday 9 June, The Physiological Society hosted an early career networking event to support Affiliates wishing to meet each other and senior members of The Society. The event also included a series of talks providing an insight into some key skills such as public engagement and networking.
The programme will include talks on CRISPR, but also showing the utility of techniques such as ZFNs and Talens. As well as editing, the use of these techniques to regulate gene expression will be explored both in the context of studying normal physiology and the mechanisms of disease. The use of the techniques in engineering cells and animals will be explored, as will techniques to deliver edited reagents and edited cells in vivo.
