On 2nd November 2020, we brought you the latest in our Zoom into Pompe series ZiP006 featuring Dr Pim Pijnappel, PhD, who discussed the overview of gene therapy for Pompe Disease.

The recorded presentation of ZiP006, “Gene Therapy overview”, by Pim Pijnappel PhD, is now available to members of the Pompe community but, sadly, we do not have permission to share it more widely. For that reason, we can only provide a YouTube link to Subscribers of the Pompe Support Network, or by an email request to

Once you have the link, we ask you not to share it outside of the Pompe community; post it on Facebook, other social media, or add it to a public playlist. Hopefully that won’t affect your enjoyment of the video and will allow us to continue to host it, and future videos, on YouTube.
