CAN CRISPR SAVE BEN DUPREE? Scientists are rushing to figure out how to use the gene-editing tool to stop devastating diseases like muscular dystrophy.
Originally published on Medical Daily. An innovative gene-manipulation technique known as CRISPR-Cas9 has shown further promise as a treatment for Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), all while avoiding potential ethical dilemmas. A ...
A new gene-editing technique called CRISPR/Cas9 improved muscle function in live mice with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, establishing its potential as a therapy for humans.
CRISPR has revolutionised gene editing in just a few years. But for one scientist, that's not fast enough
