Pharm Exec shares our commitment to diversity

Special thanks to Lisa Henderson for showcasing our programs connection to ChristianaCare.

Dr. Eric Kmiec our lab director is quoted:

“We have found it’s actually been the best location for the development of a bio-therapeutic product, especially one that is so innovative as CRISPR. The reason for that is being embedded in a system where we see all levels of socioeconomic development with the people coming through our doors, who have sometimes never seen a doctor. We see a level of underserved communities, which gives us a perspective that this is not about the technology—not really about CRISPR—it’s actually about the patient. And as we move forward on the technology, we do want to translate this into the patients, and we have a very strong purpose at GEI to reduce the healthcare inequity and health disparities that we see.”
