Precision genome engineering has completely revolutionized biological research and is making groundbreaking inroads to therapies. Progress is rapid and the ability for researchers to meet and network is essential in order to stay updated with the latest advances in the field. This conference will focus on new fundamental CRISPR-Cas biology, creation of new genome engineering tools (both CRISPR-Cas and otherwise), provide updates on new biological applications, and discuss the latest advances on applications moving towards market, such as therapies and agricultural developments. The Keystone Symposia conference on CRISPR has been a benchmark of the field and draws large audiences. The continued development of creative new tools and further progress towards real-world application will be a big attraction for participants. This conference will also include workshops and panels on ethical questions that will enrich the scientific program. Finally, this meeting will be held jointly with the Keystone Symposia conference Emerging Cellular Therapies. This is an ideal pairing as genome engineering has become de rigueur in this arena. Genome engineer attendees will benefit by learning pain points and missing pieces in the field of cellular therapy, and cell therapy attendees will benefit by hearing about the latest and greatest coming at break-neck speed from the genome engineering field.

Keystone Symposia is committed to maintaining a positive and respectful environment at its meetings. To this end, please review and comply with our policies
Registered attendees of one meeting in a joint pair may participate in sessions of the other, pending space availability.
All those submitting an abstract should plan to attend in-person to ensure extensive interaction opportunities. At this time we recognize that a small percentage of submitters may be unable to travel due to border crossing restrictions and/or institutional travel bans. If these restrictions are still in place during the meeting, permissions for remote presentations will be given for the exceptional circumstances listed above.
NOTE: In the event that your abstract isn't selected for a short talk and you're not able to travel the abstract fee is nonrefundable. All paid abstracts will be included in the meeting app and meeting materials available online.
