Abstract

Cellular engineering and cellular therapies hold promise for the treatment of a variety of both acquired and genetic disorders. An engineered cell or a transgene can be introduced to augment or to restore a cellular function. Such function is of great importance to an increasing variety of disease conditions, both acquired as well as inherited. For the future of clinical medicine it could positively effect the disease burden and help restore quality of life.
