Cell and Gene Therapy Portal

Gene Therapy Review

The Gene Therapy Review is the web's most visited site for those interested in cell and gene therapy.

The site was founded in 2007 with a view to establishing the most comprehensive human genetics resource on the web, with content provided by the life sciences research community.

We publish articles on a number of themes, including topics on imaging techniques, general gene transfer technologies and reviews on the gene therapies of specific disorders. We also showcase various companies and organisations working in the field by publishing articles on their work and distributing information and press releases regarding their research, services and products under development.

We welcome contributions from researchers and clinicians alike with a view in increase awareness in this vastly growing sector.

At present the Gene Therapy Review comprises the following features:

Gene Therapy News: All the breaking news in the gene therapy arena can be found in our news pages. You can read how the latest research will likely impact on the field in analysis. For those seeking employment in the sector, we have established a job bulletin board, where academics are invited to advertise for free.

Gene Therapy Research: We provide links to the home pages of all the academic research groups devoted to human genetics, gene therapy and stem cell research. In the companies section we detail the status of private sector DNA research. You can also follow their progress in our literature section where all the latest genetic engineering articles are listed

Gene Therapy Companies: We review the companies that are developing new gene transfer technologies and list the service providers that offer contract manufacturing or contract research to the field. Information on genetic disorders, cancer and infectious disease (current targets of gene therapy research) is also provided, with links to further reading on each topic.

Gene Therapy Technology: Our gene vector pages to learn more about gene transfer into human cells. We describe all the current techniques used for gene delivery. Our technical pages also serve as a source for all commerical gene transfer vectors. These pages have links to plasmid maps, DNA sequences and manuals.

Gene Therapy Literature: Our literature section contains analysis of the latest articles published in the leading gene therapy journals. You can also search pubmed from this section. Activities of the various gene therapy societies are listed and we provide a calender of all the annual international scientific congresses focussing on human genetics.

We hope you find our site useful and encourage you to leave comments as to how we can improve.
