SHANGHAI and CLINTON (NJ), October 09, 2023 – HuidaGene Therapeutics (辉大基因; Huidagene), a global clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on developing CRISPR-based programmable genomic medicines, today announced thirteen (13) presentations on Company’s various gene therapy platforms at the upcoming European Society of Gene and Cell Therapy (ESGCT) Annual Meeting to be held in Brussels, Belgium from 24-27 October, 2023. These presentations demonstrate Company’s unique HG-PRECISE® platform developing various novel genome editing tools (hfCas13X/Y, hfCas12Max, and eRBE etc) to overcome different diseases.

“We demonstrated that our proprietary CRISPR-based HG-PRECISE® platform can improve editing efficiency and reduce off-target effects, turning revolutionary science into transformational medicines for patients living with life-threatening diseases worldwide,” said Hui Yang, Ph.D., Co-Founder and Chief Scientific Advisor of HuidaGene. “I look forward to exchanging knowledge with industry colleagues at this forum.”

The full company presence highlights the breadth of the HuidaGene contribution to advancing genomic medicine and includes two oral presentations on programmable deaminase-free base editors for G and T base editing and RNA base-editor for the treatment of OTOF-related sensorineural hearing loss. HuidaGene’s presentations at 30th ESGCT Annual Meeting include:
