The Precision Medicine Revolution: CRISPR-Based Therapies from thescientistllc on Vimeo.

CRISPR (Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats) gene-editing technology has been hailed as a breakthrough and emerged as the new face of precision medicine. Its potential as a treatment for numerous diseases, stretching from various cancer types to neurological diseases to lethal heritable disorders, has been well documented. However, efforts are ongoing that aim to clarify the complex issues surrounding the legality and ethics of genome editing for human use. For a detailed look at the progress made toward CRISPR-mediated correction of human diseases and the continuing ethics debate, The Scientist is bringing together a panel of experts who will share their research, summarize the state of the science, and discuss the next steps for those looking to adopt the technique. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with experts, ask questions, and seek advice on topics related to their research.

Topics to be covered:

  • CRISPR-generated model systems for in vivo study of a wide range of diseases
  • Therapeutic applications of genome editing and their associated societal implications
