About This Project

Cancer is a disease that affects us all. I believe that genetic editing can be used to halt tumor growth and cease the formation of new tumors in all organisms able to utilize the system, but I need your help. Genetic editing methods, like CRISPR, have been shown to be effective and accurate in plants, mice, zebrafish, and human cells. While this system has been used to edit individual genes, it has not been used in any anti-tumor experiments.
