Thank You for reading

We have just posted a new story

  • A cure for cystic fibrosis? Dutch scientist Hans Clevers and colleagues from Utrecht have used CRISPR base editors to cure cystic fibrosis in mini-organs derived from patient stem cells. Encouragingly no off-target effects were found, and the gene therapy may be safe to use for repairing damaged tissue.

  • Immunotherapy pioneer Carl June and other experts talks to us about the first CRISPR gene therapy and how the data show it is safe.
