MIT Visiting Professor, Harvey F. Lodish, delivered a lecture on “Gene therapies for sickle cell disease” at the Cedi Auditorium, University of Health and Allied Sciences on September 27, in the middle of his one-week visit to the health-focused university located in Ghana’s Volta Region. Prof. Lodish’s visit was highly anticipated and his daily lectures and interactions have been very well patronized, particularly by users of the widely-used text book, Molecular Cell Biology, of which he is the lead author. Wednesday’s lecture was the only one broadcast via live stream (Watch above). The lectures concluded on Thursday.
