Gene therapy research.

Underscoring the importance of genetic testing

Our goal at aSharedVision is to help the inherited retinal disease (IRD) community understand the field of gene therapy research and why it is more important than ever to get genetically tested.

Understanding genetic disease.

The human body is as complex as it is remarkable. Gain insight into the science behind gene therapy research by first understanding the body's core building blocks: cells, chromosomes and DNA.

Potential of gene therapy.

Science is pursuing ways to replace or correct the mutated genes responsible for some inherited retinal diseases. Find out why it may be more important than ever to get genetically tested.

Meet our researchers.

Researchers around the world are passionately pursuing the field of gene therapy research, advancing the science in ways meaningful to the IRD community. Meet Spark Therapeutics’ leading scientists in this exciting field of research.

Gene therapy research for inherited retinal disease.

Researchers have been investigating and evolving gene therapy for more than 50 years with the hope of finding ways to treat diseases that were previously untreatable. What makes this pioneering science exciting for the inherited retinal disease community is that a number of innovators behind gene therapy research are targeting IRDs.

Gene therapy research: then and now.

Here’s a quick look at just how far the field of gene therapy research has come.
