Ultrasound-powered nanomotors to deliver Cas9

CRISPR-Cas9 has been a revolution in genome editing, from bacteria to humans. However, the efficiency delivering Cas9 and the sgRNA is one of the limiting points in the process. Researchers used plasmid-base delivery systems, nano-vesicles or nano-particles to improve the efficiency delivering the CRISPR systems. In this new article, “Active Intracellular Delivery of a Cas9/sgRNA Complex … Read more

NIH ensure $190M for CRISPR Genome Editing Research

The NIH plans to invest $190M during the next 6 years to fund researchers developing tools and technologies to ensure safety and effectiveness in genome editing in humans, focus on non-reproductive somatic cells. NIH Director Dr. Francis S. Collins declare yesterday that “Genome editing technologies such as CRISPR/Cas9 are revolutionizing biomedical research. The focus of the … Read more
