Clinical In Vivo Gene Therapy

The Clinical In Vivo Gene Therapy (CIGT) group is dedicated to advancing clinical in vivo gene therapy at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). Through industry partnerships and investigator-initiated trials, CIGT seeks to further the development of transformative human therapies and to build upon CHOP’s legacy as a leader in gene therapy.

CHOP has been at the forefront of major in vivo gene therapy milestones over the past two decades. To date, we have treated more than 120 patients from 15 countries with in vivo gene therapies.
