Description

Fighting Cancer, "Improved" Gene Editing, and More Bioethics News



In this episode we review some bioethics news (links below) and talk about a new book about fighting cancer (and when enough is enough) and advancements in gene editing that some are talking about as "a significant step towards [being] able to make just about any kind of DNA change that anyone wants at just about any site in the human genome."



Prime Editing (NPR)
Article on Dr. Rebrikov's efforts at altering "deaf" gene (Nature)
First Cell Review (NYT)



(If you're interest in reading Dr. Raza's book, we encourage you to check it out at your library. Or you can buy it from Amazon here.



We'd love to hear what you think of this episode!
