Cracking the Code that Runs Us: The Future of Gene Therapy

February 28, 2022

The discovery of DNA in the 1850’s allowed us to see into the genetic code of individual humans. Fast forward to the 21st century, scientists are developing a technique to rewrite those genes. In this episode, we look at the ways gene editing is being used to turn that century-old breakthrough into the future of medicine. We speak with Jefferies’ Will Sevush, Beam Therapeutics’ Pino CiarmellaNeville Sanjana from the NY Genome Center, and Dr. Paul Offit at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
