Gene therapy is revolutionizing medicine. We are in a time like no other to advance the development of new gene-based therapies to benefit children and adults with uncurable genetic disorders.


The UC San Diego Gene Therapy Initiative (GTI) has the capacity and vision to drive innovative discoveries and pave the way for further advancements in gene therapy. The GTI aims to achieve medical breakthroughs in gene therapy through the sharing of knowledge and resources, the collaboration of key investigators and clinicians, and the establishment of strategic academia-industry partnerships.
