Samira Kiani, Arizona State, gene editing technology that could potentially cure disease and turn the medical world on its ear

Arizona State University's Samira Kiani, M.D. (PI) recently discussed groundbreaking medical advances that could be on the horizon with gene editing on the Future Tech Podcast.
Kiani studied the development of synthetic gene circuits used to reprogram various functions and general behavior of mammalian cells based on the advanced CRISPR/Cas9 technology, according to Future Tech Podcast.

With gene editing the technology could allow researchers to repair or disable genes, Kiani said in the podcast. By using CRISPR, Kiani and other researchers are able to work with double-strand DNA breaks.
