A Celebration of Gene Therapy Progress

“See the Light” Awards

“Sweetness and Laughter” Performance


Attire: Jeans, of course!

After 15 years of driving gene therapy research for Tay-Sachs and related diseases, with a series of twists and turns like the DNA helix, we are ready to celebrate clinical trial readiness and so much more.

Join us for the ultimate “Celebration of Gene Therapy”. We are inviting everyone to wear their favorite Jeans and carry the theme forward with our incredible entertainment. What is more therapeutic than laughter with a performing legend named Gene?

Gene Merola is “a master of rapid fire one-liners” claimed Las Vegas Today. The South Florida Sun-Sentinel touted, “Merola is a real pro when it comes to working an audience.” His show featuring audience participation, music and creative improvisation, has delighted from the famous Ft. Lauderdale club Bojangles to Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Cruise Ships and opening for Jerry Seinfeld and the Commodores. This year’s “See the Light” Awards honor leaders in gene therapy for our diseases.
