Instant Genius Podcast: CRISPR, with Prof Fyodor Urnov
Gene editor Prof Fyodor Urnov joins us on our podcasts Instant Genius and Instant Genius Extra.
Instant Genius is a bite-sized masterclass in podcast form. In this week's episode, we talk to Prof Fyodor Urnov. He works at the Innovative Genomics Institute at UC Berkley in California with Jennifer Doudna, who won the 2020 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for the discovery of CRISPR.
CRISPR is a revolutionary method of gene editing. Fyodor tells us how CRISPR is already changing the lives of people with genetic disorders, and why it’s essential that gene editing therapies are accessible to all.
And if that's not enough, you can hear even more from Fyodor on Instant Genius Extra.
On this subscription-only show, available on Apple Podcasts, we take a deeper dive into the topics covered on Instant Genius. In this episode, Fyodor explains the ethical issues around gene editing, and what makes him most excited for the future of CRISPR.
