In June 2017, the Italian Association for Cell Cultures (AICC) have organized focused meeting dedicated to “Genome Editing”. During the meeting several national and international experts in the field will discuss this interesting technical innovation and its possible applications in basic, translational research and design of novel anti-cancer therapy. Genome editing is a technology that induces specific changes in the DNA of a cell or organism that allows studying their influence in the determination of the phenotypic characteristics. The meeting aims to transfer to the participants the know-how on the currently available methods to induce changes in the DNA of a cell system and how to use them to accurately study the function of different genes, to understand how they work and their definitive biological effects. The meeting will also illustrate several cell and animal models, and will end with a practical demonstration of advanced models for the study of different human diseases in order to design innovative therapeutic approaches. With these specific objectives, the meeting has been approved by Italian Ministry of Health for Continuous Education and Training in medical, biological, pharmaceutical and technological areas.
