Several children born with "bubble-boy disease" caused by ADA deficiency have been cured by gene therapy without major side effects and researchers have ameliorated a growing list of disease conditions in animals including diabetes, arthritis, heart disease and cancer. Some of these gene therapy treatments are now in advanced stages of clinical trials.

Leading scientists in the fields of cancer, arthritis, infectious diseases, and childhood blindness will discuss their research and progress toward bringing these promising gene therapy technologies and products to the clinic.
