CRISPR: Opportunities and Challenges Webinar
CRISPR is a genome-editing technique that provides a simple yet versatile method for making targeted changes to the genome of living cells. Researchers have already applied CRISPR to reverse disease-causing mutations and to engineer pest-resistant crops.
In this CRISPR webinar, PreScouter will be joined by experts and researchers to review CRISPR’s opportunities and challenges. We will touch upon key challenges, such as reducing off-target effects, as well as new advances set to overcome some of the current limitations, such as novel CRISPR systems. Additionally, we’ll highlight potential first applications of the technology within medicine and agriculture.
This is a great opportunity to not only learn from experts about how this disruptive technology is changing gene editing but also ask your personal questions about CRISPR.
This CRISPR discussion will be moderated by Charles Wright, the Medical Project Architect at PreScouter.
