Hey Thomas, I just wanted to say that I truly hope your work succeeds. I had a similar experience with a close family member passing away from cancer while I was in junior high, resulting in me getting into oncological research. In terms of the viral vector, what type of vector system are you looking at? I'd be interested to find out how you are planning on achieving appropriate spread and expression of the system within tumor cells. Also, how are you planning on packaging the system into the vector? I'm struggling with the logistics right now of trying to figure out how to package the Cas9 D10A Nickase and two gRNAs into an oncolytic virus genome - so I'd be interested to know how your tackling the issue. Again, all the best! Abdullah
