Enabling Treatment for Genetic Diseases

A team of researchers from GIS developed a CRISPR-based gene editor, C-to-G Base Editor (CGBE), to correct mutations that cause genetic disorders. more This invention opens up treatment options for human diseases such as cystic fibrosis, cardiovascular diseases, musculoskeletal diseases and neurological disorders. This research has been published in Nature Communications. more
