PolyGene presented poster ‘Novel Glucocorticoid-based Gene Regulation System’ at Transgenic Technology Meeting

Polygene presented a poster entitled ‘Novel Glucocorticoïd-based Gene Regulation System’ the 13th Transgenic Technology Meeting in Prague, held March 20-23 2016 and organized by the International Society of Transgenic Technologies (ISTT) ( Over 600 scientists from all over the world attended this much sought-after meeting, and PolyGene was participating with four representatives. The program was dense with full three days of mostly plenary talks.

The poster describes a novel gene regulation system that PolyGene  developed in the context of the CarTarDis project. The result is a gene control which we hope is amongst the tightest and best regulated, with least drug side effects, on the market. The developed gene control system will be applied in a development of an animal model for validation of one of the targets selected within the Cartadis consortium.
