The August Journal Club is now available to view. We were joined by Ocean level Lifespan Hero Joel Peterson. We have been talking about a number of new studies in past Journal Clubs, so we thought it was time to take a look at the actual delivery methods and the hurdles we face in the field to develop effective therapies. We will be discussing the delivery methods for gene therapies and in particular this recent paper:

Gallego-Perez, D., Pal, D., Ghatak, S., Malkoc, V., Higuita-Castro, N., Gnyawali, S., … & Singh, K. (2017). Topical tissue nano-transfection mediates non-viral stroma reprogramming and rescue. Nature nanotechnology.
