Start calling scientists - how to get a treatment for your toddler’s rare disease
00:27:24

The story of a mother's race against time to find a genetic treatment for her son, and the technology that's helping her do it - CRISPR mice from China.


Correction - January 8th, 2020: An earlier version of this podcast episode stated that the gene therapy method that’s being developed to treat Maxwell would alter his genetic map. That is incorrect. The gene therapy method in question, which is called AAV9, won’t alter Maxwell’s mutation. We regret the error.

Biohacking: Rules of Engagement
00:30:56

Josiah Zayner is a biohacker who’s famous for, among other things, injecting himself with the gene-editing tool CRISPR. At a time when the technology exists for us to change, or hack, our own DNA, what are the ethics of experimenting on ourselves, and others at home? Arielle Duhaime-Ross has been following Zayner’s story and talks to him about how he’s thinking about human experimentation today. Plus: new efforts to come up with a code of conduct for biohackers, from legislation to self-regulation.
