Bioengineer to Use $2M Grant to Study Gene Editing for CF

A bioengineer at Rice University will use a more than $2 million federal grant for a project to “repair” harmful mutations that cause cystic fibrosis (CF) using a potentially more accurate approach to gene editing developed in her lab, the university announced in a press release. The National Institutes of Health’s four-year award was given to Xue Sherry Gao, PhD, to adapt her lab’s tools to improve the accuracy of CRISPR/Cas9-based gene editing in mending…
