Genome Engineering Workshop
Each year, the Zhang lab hosts a two-day workshop aimed at sharing knowledge about CRISPR-mediated tools and other aspects of genome engineering, from basic biology to technology development. The workshop is geared toward scientists at all levels of training who have an interest in learning more about implementing genome engineering approaches in their own work and in keeping up with the latest developments in this field.

CRISPR in vivo
The 2019 workshop will take a closer look at applications of genome engineering for human therapeutics, including talks about improving the specificity and efficiency of gene editing, delivery of molecular therapeutics, consideration of rare gene variants in the human population, and exploring natural diversity to find new potential tools.
Keynote speakers: Katrine Bosley, Former CEO of Editas Medicine and Keith Joung, Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard
James Dahlman, University of Georgia
Bin Gu, Rossant Lab @ SickKids Research Institute
Eugene Koonin, NCBI
David Paez-Espino, Joint Genome Institute
Sadelain Lab @ Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Institute
Jonathan Wilde, Feng Lab @ McGovern Institute for Brain Research at MIT

Monday will feature talks from leaders in the field focused on outstanding challenges in genome engineering
Can I present my work?
You are encouraged to share your work with your fellow workshop attendees. For this purpose we will have a poster session on Sunday, May 19th. Abstracts can be submitted via the registration link or email your abstract to email@example.com by April 29th.
Do I need to pay for anything?
Registration for the full workshop is $25 for academic attendees and $100 for industry attendees. This money helps cover the cost of meals served during the workshop. The rest of the event is made possible by the generosity of the Broad Institute and our sponsors.
Where can I stay?
We do not offer lodging, so you will need to make our own arrangements. There are several nearby hotels - two Marriotts and the Kendall Hotel. The Broad is right off the Red Line subway at the Kendall/MIT stop, so anyplace that is near the Red Line will also be convenient for getting to the meeting.
