This week, Peter Q. Nguyen, Ph.D, a Microbiology & Cellular Devices Research Scientist at Harvard University's Wyss Institute, joins Abby in the classroom to help with her lesson plan on CRISPR. CRISPR is a scientific development that allows scientists to target and edit gene sequences, and it's a technology that could serve to heal a number of gene-related disorders, cancers, and more in the future. Dr. Nguyen discusses how this technology works, what this technology might mean for medicine and the larger implications of gene editing.
