Watch this NYSCF presentation on gene editing to:
- Meet Dr. Zhang
- Discover how CRISPR works in clear, relatable terms
- Get a preview of CRISPR’s potential to study or treat nearly any disease with a genetic component, such as cancer, Huntington’s, and Alzheimer’s.
Gene editing is revolutionizing the way we study and treat disease. Many diseases are influenced or caused by errors in our genes, and cutting-edge gene editing technologies have the potential to correct these errors and return patients to normal life. At NYSCF, we are combining gene editing and stem cells to understand how individual and population genetics influence disease and develop new therapies.
Hear MIT Professor and NYSCF – Robertson Stem Cell Investigator, Feng Zhang, PhD, discuss his role in the development of CRISPR, a preeminent gene editing tool, and how this technology is bringing better treatments to patients around the world.
