The laboratory of Michael A. Barry, Ph.D., uses genes and viruses to treat a set of challenging diseases. The goals of the program are the development of:
Dr. Barry and his team's work on gene therapy addresses diseases that have no other treatment options, so advances in this area are likely to greatly improve the quality of life and survival of patients of all ages.
Infectious diseases are one of the greatest worldwide causes of death in humans. Dr. Barry's work targets vaccines against pandemic infectious diseases. So progress in these efforts appears promising to prevent these diseases and stop their spread.
Metastatic cancer is a profound challenge to current treatments. The lab's efforts to deliver self-amplifying virotherapy hold promise to attack disseminated cancer, providing another weapon in the arsenal of treatment options for patients.
