Exploring the Frontiers of Genetics: An Interview with Dr. George Church on Rewriting Genomes to Eradicate Disease and Aging

George Church, Ph.D.: Rewriting Genomes for Disease Elimination and Aging
Goerge church, a brilliant and all-around intelligent man, talks about the genetic engineering technologies.

George Church, Ph.D., is a professor of medical genetics and health sciences at Harvard Medical School. He also teaches at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard. Dr. Church was a key player in the Human Genome Project, and is recognized as a leading scientist in gene editing and synthetic biology.
