Few technologies have the potential to disrupt and eliminate infectious disease and viral infections– but gene editing, CRISPR in particular, is a latent technology that could change biotech – and we’re just seeing the beginning of what effect it could have on the world.

With scientific promise comes interest from investors – a surge of biotech startups are utilizing CRISPR technology for many different applications such as at-home testing, in-clinic uses, and more. “This incredibly powerful repurposing of the bacterial immune system has created an outpouring of financial backing for small companies with revolutionary technological advancement in genome engineering-based ventures.”[1]

We will explore this subject with presentations from experts in the field, startup companies innovating in this space, and investors looking to invest in these new applications.
