Genome editing was the stuff of science fiction but with the advancement of CRISPR technology, genome editing has become a quick reality. How does it work and how is it changing research and disease treatment? Are designer babies next on the list? Come on out for a discussion with expert Nichole Escalante on the development and future of this ground breaking technology.
Nichole Escalante is a graduate student from the Department of Immunology at the University of Toronto. She obtained a Bachelor of Science in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry at Simon Fraser University and is currently working towards her PhD. Her research focuses on understanding the regulation of immune cells in the gut and exploring genetic defects which could contribute to the development of inflammatory bowel diseases. Nichole is a founding member of SciChat – A graduate student volunteer group dedicated to improving science literacy across the GTA.
