How Gene Editing Can Help Lead to a Cure (Part Two) and the 2017 Nobel Prizes for Science

In last week’s blog post, I discussed the ways in which CRISPR gene-editing technology is allowing researchers to study disease and intervene at the molecular level. There is a sense of euphoria that so many things can be accomplished and, as I noted, the sky is the limit in the potential applications.

Can New Gene-Editing Tools Provide the Roadmap to A Cure for Myeloma?

CRISPR technology was the 2015 science breakthrough of the year. The discovery and implementation of this technology has set off a revolution in genetic research and treatment. But what does it mean for cancer, and specifically, might CRISPR technology be used to help find a cure for myeloma?

The Importance of Having a Plan

When a myeloma treatment or research plan comes together, it can be a great achievement. But it is unlikely to occur by chance. The goals and options need to be laid out very carefully ahead of time.
