Directed by Jamie Cottle. Tim Townes, PhD is the Director of the UAB Stem Cell Institute. Here he describes his groundbreaking gene therapy to treat Sickle Cell anemia, a disease which cripples millions worldwide. If successful, Dr. Townes won't simply eliminate a crippling disease, his treatment method can then be modified to cure many known ailments derived from genetic aberrations. This has the potential to redefine the human condition and our understanding of disease.
