CRISPR Makes Biology the New Digital
CRISPR gene editing is one of the most powerful discoveries of our time. It will transform our future by creating or curing disease, creating or killing species, and effecting anything that we manufacture. CRISPR is set to change everything.
XPRIZE is an educational (501c3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to bring about radical breakthroughs for the benefit of humanity, thereby inspiring the formation of new industries and the revitalization of markets that are currently stuck due to existing failures or a commonly held belief that a solution is not possible. XPRIZE addresses the world’s Grand Challenges by creating and managing large-scale, high-profile, incentivized prize competitions that stimulate investment in research and development worth far more than the prize itself. It motivates and inspires brilliant innovators from all disciplines to leverage their intellectual and financial capital.
