The Lipshutz Lab would like to congratulate Staff Research Associate Colleen Le for her achievements and her acceptance into UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine. Thank you for all of your contributions to this lab!
Lizzie Zhang and Dr. Gerry Lipshutz presented at this year’s ASGCT Conference. Lizzie presented “Oligodendrocyte Toxicity by Guanidino Compounds, Not Arginine, Fosters Dysmyelination in Arginase Deficiency and is Prevented by AAV-Based Gene Therapy.” Dr. Lipshutz presented “mRNA-3927 Therapy for Propionic Acidemia: Interim Data From a Phase 1/2 Study.” Congratulations to both Lizzie and Dr. Lipshutz!
Several members of the Lipshutz Lab attended the 26th Annual American Society of Gene and Cell Therapy Conference. These members included Dr. Gerry Lipshutz, Lizzie Zhang, Colleen Le, Natanya Gunn, Taryn Diep, Puja Patel, Yue Huang, and Aleks Bogoniewski.
Dr. Gerald Lipshutz has been awarded the Quest Award by the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM)! The $2.3 million award will fund the lab’s work to develop a one-time gene therapy to treat creatine transporter deficiency, which inhibits creatine—a molecule that is an essential energy source for brain and muscle cells—from reaching the brain and muscles and causes neural…
