Genome editing to create personalized safe and effective medicines

Genome editing gives precise control of the type of genetic modification made to a cell. Hematopoietic stem cells have pharmacologic properties of durability and output that still remain untapped. Matthew Porteus and his group are using genome editing of hematopoietic stem cells to develop new classes of drugs to treat patients.

Die Veranstaltung ist Teil des CAS-Schwerpunkts CRISPR/Cas.


  • Prof. Matthew Porteus, Sutardja Chuk Professor of Definitive and Curative Medicine at Stanford University
