Let’s Get Mental by Dustin Driver


December 30, 2017

This is a podcast about science, technology, and society. We’ll discuss some of the biggest questions facing humanity today, and ponder the future. In this, the very first podcast, I chat with Amy Koski at the Oregon Health and Science University about CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing. Amy is the lab manager at the Center for Embryonic Cell and Gene Therapy at OHSU. The lab made headlines in August 2017 when they successfully repaired heart disease genes in human embryonic cells using CRISPR/Cas9.
