Biography

Dr. Lipshutz’s research is directed toward the development of strategies for gene and cellular transfer that may permit the cure of many forms of inherited disease. In these studies, the primary goals are to:

  • develop strategies for the treatment of inherited disease before the clinical onset of phenotype at birth
  • to examine if tolerance to foreign transgene products can be induced by delivery and expression of the protein during immunologic development
  • to track hematopoeitic and hepatic cells transplanted before birth and determine their final fate as a method to develop cellular therapy
