I had the opportunity to guest host on Matt Pillar’s Business of Biotech podcast recently when Matt and I chatted Sio Gene Therapies CEO Pavan Cheruvu, M.D. We discuss Dr. Cheruvu's formative years and inspiration, and more. Sio recently announced data in a rare pediatric disease called GM1 gangliosidosis at the 2021 ASGCT Annual Meeting. We discuss the disease, what causes it, why gene therapy is a good approach to treat it. Sio’s current programs focus on gene therapy; as such, we discuss the development and production challenges and the anticipated manufacturing challenges for commercial scale-up.

Give it a listen.
