Liz Parrish at Wired Health 2017: Ageing is a Disease. Gene Therapy Could be the Cure

Our CEO, Liz Parrish, spoke at the Wired Health conference in London last month. At the conference Liz spoke about how her son being diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes was the motivation behind her researching gene therapy treatments for cures. She also spoke about how and why she tested gene therapies on herself. Finally, Liz discussed the  importance of making gene therapy more widely available and how it could ‘cure’ the most prevalent disease of all; aging.
