Cellectis to Present at the Annual Congress of the European Society of Gene & Cell Therapy
Date:10/6/2010

PARIS, Oct. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Cellectis (Alternext: ALCLS), the French genome engineering specialist, announces today that Julianne Smith, PhD, head of the Meganuclease Recombination System group at Cellectis genome surgery, will present Cellectis' results at the 18th Annual Congress of the European Society of Gene and Cell Therapy (ESGCT) to be held in Milano, Italy, on October 22-25, 2010.

Targeted approaches have emerged today as an alternative to current random insertion strategies for gene therapy. Meganucleases, the most specific endonucleases, represent ideal tools for targeted genome editing, or genome surgery. They can induce up to 20% of gene insertion into chosen human genes.

Dr Smith will present "Meganucleases for Gene Therapy" on October 23, 2010, at 3:00 PM, during an oral session on Homologous Recombination and Targeted Integration (session 8b).
