CRISPR Systems: Nature’s Toolkit for Genome Editing

by Imiloa Astronomy Center on September 14th, 2018


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.
