Gene Therapy

Gene Therapy for Non Ketotic Hyperglycinemia, NKH

In 2019, the Drake Rayden Foundation partnered with the Steven Gray Lab at the University of Texas Southwestern, UTSW for a two year project to create a gene therapy project for the terminal, rare disease NonKetotic Hyperglycinemia, or Glycine Encephalopathy. The project is lead by Steven Gray, Ph.D, associate professor and expert in AAV gene therapy in the department of Pediatrics, Eugene McDermott Center for Human Growth and Development. Dr. Gray has pioneered gene therapy treatments for various neurological diseases.  At UT Southwestern he is overseeing one of the nations few facilities that manufactures a special type of gene-delivering virus for patient use.  

Watch the inspiring video of UTSW and their cutting edge gene therapy techniques helping families suffering terminal illnesses.
