Josiah will talk about advances in CRISPR technology for gene editing as well as current controversies over its use in medicine. Josiah is a well-known biohacker who believes that technologies like CRISPR should be in the hands of as many people as possible to allow scientific exploration and discovery to accelerate. To that end, Josiah founded The Odin, located in West Oakland, which sells CRISPR kits to home users. A Netflix documentary crew followed Josiah for two years and highlighted efforts of biohackers and patients to push the medical system for increased access to cutting edge biotech therapies.
