Bench to bedside. Research drives results.

ChristianaCare’s Gene Editing Institute is a true, traditional wet bench laboratory where cutting-edge expertise and hands-on investigation are driving new technologies and therapies. Our teams do basic science to advance the science of gene editing and pursue key avenues to translate new understanding into promising treatments.

Innovative research at the Gene Editing Institute focuses on two primary objectives:  aggressively testing the boundaries of these innovative gene editing strategies and creating tools to bring them to the clinic quickly and with greatest efficacy.

Translational Sciences

Translational Science is the bridge between research and practice, applying cutting-edge techniques to ensure that new gene therapies are safe, effective, and ready to bring to the bedside.
