News: Regulatory landscape of advanced-therapy medicinal products
Advanced therapy medicinal products (ATMPs) are a category of innovative products comprising gene-therapy medicinal products (GTMPs),somatic cell-therapy medicinal products (sCTMP) and tissue-engineered products (TEPs). The main therapeutic areas are oncology and regenerative medicine, particularly in the field of cardiovascular conditions and haematology. Yet despite the harmonising EU legislation which has been in place since 2008, few products have reached the market in commercial form. In 2014 the European Commission issued a report on the implementation of ATMP legislation to date. On June 30 2014 the European Medicines Agency Committee for Advanced Therapies announced a public consultation on its revised guidance for ATMP classification. The consultation ended on October 31 2014.

EMBO Workshop: Modern DNA concepts and tools for safe gene transfer and modification
In this workshop, 45 world class scientists will review the latest approaches of gene therapy, presenting major aspects and cutting edge techniques: from basic knowledge of genome dynamics, structure, organization and expression to recent technologies of gene editing and vector development for clinical trials. We encourage all researchers, especially PhD students, to submit an abstract to present a poster, 23 of them will be selected for oral presentations.
