About five years ago, biochemist Sam Sternberg helped make one of the most monumental discoveries in biology: a relatively easy way to alter any organism’s DNA, known as the “CRISPR” gene-editing technology. This discovery has enormous ramifications for the future of the human race, including its potential use to rewrite flawed genes responsible for countless currently incurable diseases.
IVYtv sat down with Sam Sternberg to hear more about the transformative potential of CRISPR and his work to create a happier for healthier life for humans — starting at the level of DNA.
