CRISPR: The rapidly evolving science of genome editing

CRISPR has captured the world’s attention. Scientists are puzzling out how to exploit the tool to improve human health. CRISPR companies have cautiously begun testing specific gene-editing therapies in people. And these advances have come with shortcomings, as well: There have been technical obstacles to overcome, challenges with delivery of CRISPR to the right place in the body, and deep ethical concerns about permanently rewriting genomes not just for an individual but for generations to come.

In this latest eBook, we’ve curated a selection of recent STAT stories charting these discoveries, the businesses being built on them, and their potential impact on all our lives. We hope you enjoy.
