Thank You for reading

More news on overcoming challenges in gene editing therapies.

  • One of the big challenges in gene therapy is how to target specific organs and tissues. Now a group of researchers from The University of Texas use modified nanoparticles to encapsulate CRISPR gene-editing cargo, and then send the particles into the bloodstream from where they find and deliver the tools to specific organs in mice. Read our interview with leading researcher Daniel Siegwart here.

  • Just two weeks ago, we wrote another story on overcoming a gene therapy roadblock. A UCLA-team of researchers developed an ingenious device that uses sound to deliver CRISPR into cells at the incredible rate of 200,000 cells/minute.
