The story of a mother's race against time to find a genetic treatment for her son, and the technology that's helping her do it - CRISPR mice from China.Correction - January 8th, 2020: An earlier version of this podcast episode stated that the gene therapy method that’s being developed to treat Maxwell would alter his genetic map. That is incorrect. The gene therapy method in question, which is called AAV9, won’t alter Maxwell’s mutation.

So sad that the fundraising for the clinical trials falls onto the family but it’s nice that the technology is available for them to help their son

Presumably Google has lots of data on white people's faces; that's why there's a data gap. So I wonder how they got that data, and whether the process was markedly different than the one used here, which I agree was not good. If the process was different (e.g. more transparent for white people), that is certainly an additional problem. If it was the same, then can we say that the project was wrong from the beginning? Or given the history, would it still be fundamentally different to use these tactics on marginalized people?
