Applying CRISPR Tech to Edit the Code of Life | Dr. Jennifer Doudna | GZERO World with Ian Bremmer

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, genetics

Nobel winner Jennifer Doudna explains CRISPR, the gene-editing technology she pioneered.

Berkeley scientist Jennifer Doudna won the 2020 Nobel Prize for her work on the revolutionary gene-editing technology known as CRISPR. It has the potential to cure genetic diseases like sickle cell anemia and hereditary blindness and may even be used to treat cancer and HIV. But when it comes to editing humanity, where do we draw the line? How do we avoid falling into the same kind of dystopian nightmare outlined in Blade Runner? Doudna discussed the risks and benefits of CRISPR in an interview with Ian Bremmer on GZERO World. Also in this episode: a look at cloning our pets (speaking of going too far…).
