CRISPR: Happier, More Productive?

  • KGB Bar Red Room (East Village) 85 East 4th Street New York, NY, 10003 United States (map)

Since its discovery, the CRISPR-Cas9 system has revolutionized our ability to manipulate and change the genome of almost any organism, including humans. CRISPR allows scientists to reach into cells and add or replace genes to an astonishing degree of accuracy with fewer and fewer side-effects. Join us as we speak with two scientists at the forefront of this rapidly developing technology as they help us understand how CRISPR works, what makes it so game-changing, and how the future of medicine could, or should, be changed by it.

Doors open at 7pm, Event begins at 7:30pm
