Following on from the success of last year, Oxford Global is proud to present our 3rd Annual Genome Editing USA Congress to be held on the 14-15 May 2019 in Boston. The congress is co-located with our 2nd Annual Synthetic Biology USA Congress and combined will bring together over 300 leading figures from academia and biotech companies.  


Following on from a comprehensive research process with our highly esteemed advisory board, the congress features 2 days of world class talks from leading academics and pharmaceutical companies. Day one focuses on tool development and the therapeutic applications of genome editing while day two investigates drug development and transgenics. The four streams will discuss areas including the latest advances in base editing and how genome editing is being used in oncology, hereditary diseases, target identification and mouse models.
