10th Royan International Summer School



The 10th Royan International Summer School was focused on the latest molecular approaches to disease therapy as well as early diagnosis of human diseases. The speakers discussed genome-editing technologies, gene- and RNA interference (RNAi) therapies, cancer vaccines, and molecular diagnosis via biomarkers and biosensors. Early diagnosis using biomarkers enhances the chances for successful therapy in an early stage. Overall, the summer school highlighted how combination of molecular diagnosis and molecular therapy can provide higher success rates in disease treatment in the near future.
