SAHMRI Gene Editing Public Lecture

Start date

Start time
6:30 p.m.
End time

SAHMRI Auditorium

By understanding the genetic blueprint that makes each human unique, and the discovery of exciting new tools for editing the DNA sequence, we are entering the gene editing generation!                 

This public lecture and interactive panel discussion will highlight cutting-edge research using gene editing technologies. CRISPR is a new scientific tool allowing scientists to change the DNA sequence, not unlike the copy and paste function in a word-processing document. Rapid technology adoption means that we are seeing it used for trials in cancer therapies and potential uses in the agriculture industry. Does this mean it may even be possible to edit a human embryo to eradicate genetic diseases forever? Come along to learn more!
