Gene Editing: Progress or Peril?

Gene editing has the potential to revolutionize the treatment of thousands of diseases that result from single-gene mutations but with biohacking on the rise, the gene editing movement is no longer confined to scientists. Gene editing is crossing into the mainstream with at-home DIY bio kits that enable self-experimentation. Isabelle Bibet-Kalinyak will be discussing this topic during the panel, "Gene Editing: Progress or Peril?" at the Medical Legal Summit on Saturday, April 25.

The Medical Legal Summit presented by The Academy of Medicine of Cleveland & Northern Ohio and the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association. For more information and registration details, click here.
