Targeted Augmentation of Nuclear Gene Output (TANGO): A novel therapeutic approach to treat SCN1A-linked Dravet Syndrome

Wednesday, November 4, 2020
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm CDT
Zoom Meeting
Speaker: Dr. Lori Isom

Background:  Targeted augmentation of nuclear gene output (TANGO) is an antisense oligonucleotide (ASO) technology being developed by Stoke therapeutics for the treatment of severe genetic diseases. This ASO therapy targets naturally occurring, non-productive RNA splicing events to restore normal levels of the target protein. In collaboration with Stoke Therapeutics, Dr. Isom has tested this technology in a mouse model of Dravet syndrome.

You Will Need: Dr. Isom will provide an overview of TANGO and present results from testing ASOs in a mouse model of Dravet syndrome.

Speaker Bio: This webinar is presented by Dr. Lori Isom, the Maurice H. Seevers Professor and Chair of the Department of Pharmacology, Professor of Molecular and Integrative Physiology, and Professor of Neurology at the University of Michigan Medical School.
