CRISPR gene-editing technology revolutionized disease research and drug discovery by facilitating convenient gene modification and high-throughput screening. Researchers now combine the power of CRISPR technology with the biological versatility of stem cells to develop better therapeutic models, uncover disease pathology, and identify viable pharmaceutical targets. This webinar will discuss recent disease and drug discoveries enabled through screening CRISPR-modified stem cells.

Topics to be covered

  • CRISPR-Cas9 screening for drug target discovery
  • Using CRISPR-based transient reporters for editing enrichment to generate human pluripotent stem cell-based models of Alzheimer's disease
