Généthon (FR)

Généthon, created by the AFM-Telethon, has the mission to make innovative gene therapy treatments available to patients affected with rare genetic diseases. Having played a pioneering role in deciphering the human genome, Généthon is today, with more than 200 scientists, physicians, engineers and regulatory affairs specialists, one of the leading organizations for the development of gene therapy treatments. Généthon has also built one of the largest sites worldwide for GMP production of gene therapy products, Généthon Bioprod. In 2012, Généthon was awarded the prestigious Prix Galien for Pharmaceutical Research (France). In 2015, Généthon was one of 16 winners of the World Innovation Competition 2030 for its project on the development of an industrial process for production of gene therapy vectors. The pipeline of Généthon includes products currently in international clinical trials and at preclinical stages, for immune deficiencies, muscular dystrophies, ocular and liver diseases. These products are developed either with Généthon as sponsor, or in partnership with private companies and academic institutions. *
