CRISPR Technology and Disease Prevention: Geneticist Olha Chaplya to Explain More Insights at Biohacking Conference Kyiv 2020
In 2020, two scientists were named as Nobel prize winners – they are working on CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing. Technology that allows changing DNA of animals, plants and microorganisms has become a breakthrough in the gene engineering. It’s expected that genetic scissors will help in prevention and treatment of various diseases.
What is so special about CRISPR/Cas9 technology and is it possible to use genome editing to change approaches to disease therapy? Ukrainian genetic scientist Olha Chaplya will tell about this on November 11 at Biohacking Conference Kyiv 2020.
Speaker will make a presentation titled “CRISPR genome editing technology”
Olha is a lab geneticist and science advocate. She is a senior specialist certified by the European Society of Human Reproduction.
Expert is a Candidate of Sciences in Biology, specializing on Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis.
Currently Olha is an embryologist at IVMED clinic that offers infertility treatment services with a help of supportive reproductive technologies. At this medical institution, she performs procedures of full embryological cycle, takes oocytes samples, prepares biomaterials for fertilization, practices PICSI and ICSI methods.
