Kicking off Technology Networks Explores the CRISPR Revolution, Professor Mojica, or "Francis", takes us on a journey back to the original research that, despite being deemed "crazy" by members of the scientific community at the time, led to the CRISPR revolution that is anticipated to edit evolution forever.READ MORE
Impostor syndrome is experienced by millions of people around the world cross culturally, and describes difficulty internalizing one's accomplishments or abilities, and instead attributing their success to other factors. In this article, we explore the prevalence of impostor syndrome in STEM and the impact it has on the scientific community.READ MORE
Thus far, the feasibility to edit stem cells using CRISPR technology has been demonstrated in two key areas: modeling and investigating human cell states and human diseases, and regenerative medicine. In this article, we explore some of the latest research in these spaces and the approaches that scientists are adopting to overcome challenges in the field.READ MORE
