A powerful tool for editing genomes has arisen as a frontrunner for efficient genome engineering. Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeat (CRISPR) allows researchers to alter DNA sequences, treating and preventing the spread of diseases. However, the potentially broad therapeutic implications are largely unexplored.

In this talk, Professor Cohn will highlight some of the therapeutic opportunities that CRISPR holds for the future. He will also discuss the ethical challenges that this gene-revolutionary technology holds.
