Play • 1 hr 1 min

Kevin Davies

The crazy thing about revolutions is that no one knows if you’re living through one until dozens of years later. Kevin Davies, internationally recognized author and journal editor, argues that we are currently living through a revolution. The CRISPR revolution. Quite similar to the scientific revolution through the 15th and 16th century, Kevin says that the CRISPR revolution will be as impactful as the scientific revolution.   

We start this conversation where every good story should start: at the beginning. And we understand how CRISPR-Cas9 was discovered, and how the system works together to edit DNA. As our conversation progresses, we fast forward from the past (CRISPR’s discovery), to the present: what CRISPR is currently being used for, research CRISPR is currently being applied to, and success stories of CRISPR curing diseases. And at the end of our conversation, we move to the future of CRISPR. The possibilities and things that CRISPR has the potential to do in the next 10, 20, 50 years. Massive things like curing cancer, reversing aging and creating perfect crops which could fundamentally change how humanity operates.
