The Northwest Genome Engineering Consortium (NGEC) brings together researchers at Seattle Children's Research Institute, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the University of Washington to develop new methods for gene repair, an innovative approach to gene therapy.
The NGEC was initiated by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Roadmap for Medical Research, a new type of NIH grant program designed to address especially complex problems in research that require expertise across multiple scientific disciplines. Drs. Andy Scharenberg and David Rawlings, both of Seattle Children's Research Institute, serve as NGEC co-directors and principal investigators.
