For ten years, research group Omnes Pro Uno of Utrecht University has had the mission of seeking to find a cure for patients with a genetic disease before irreversible damage occurs in the body. The researchers have succeeded in growing mini-organs from almost all tissues in the human body so that treatments can be tested and genetic errors corrected.

The next ambitious step is for Omnes Pro Uno to be the first in the world to correct the genetic cause of diseases directly in the bodies of patients via the bloodstream, before the disease has an opportunity adversely to affect the body.
