How can recently discovered gene-editing tools help us cure debilitating childhood diseases? The discovery of CRISPR - a tool for precisely editing genes in living cells - has generated immense excitement for its potential to repair disease-causing DNA mutations. Join a conversation with Matthew Porteus, one of the leading researchers in using CRISPR to treat childhood immune system diseases. We'll explore both the promising future and the ethical pitfalls of CRISPR.
Matthew Porteus, MD, PhD, is a Professor in the Department of Pediatrics and at the Institute of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine at Stanford University.
