Editor’s Note:
The latest webinar in the Center’s continuing series was held on January 20th 2021 and included a presentation from Pat Furlong and Ryan Fischer, both of Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy, titled PPMD Gene Therapy Preference Study: Eliciting patient and caregiver preference for emerging gene therapies. The presentation focused on their work on the quantification of patient and caregiver preferences in gene therapy studies to help inform research and researchers and how this impacts the understanding of informed consent in rare disease, specifically Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. The presentation was followed by a discussion with call participants. Full information and the webinar recording can be found here on the Center for Informed Consent Integrity website.
