CRISPR Systems: Nature’s Toolkit for Genome Editing

by Imiloa Astronomy Center on September 14th, 2018

Doudna-Event-500

Monday, September 17 at 7pm at the UH Hilo Performing Arts Center

Professor Doudna presents the breakthrough technology that has redefined the possibilities for human and non-human applications of gene editing, including accelerating the development of new genetic surgeries to cure disease, ways to care for the environment, and nutritious foods for a growing global population challenged by climate change. She has been at the forefront of the global debate on the use of the CRISPR-Cas9 technology, and has advocated for a temporary moratorium on its use on human embryos before its safety is proven and its consequences fully understood.

This event is free and open to the public.
