Using CRISPR-Cas9 to “Attack” Cancer Cells: A New Avenue for Personalised Cancer Treatment?

By: Christos Evangelou - Mar. 21, 2022

Researchers at Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology in South Korea have developed a CRISPR-Cas9-based method to eliminate tumour cells. In this first proof-of-concept study, they confirm the feasibility of using CRISPR-Cas9 to selectively kill cancer cells in various disease models by targeting cancer-specific InDels.
