Science Cafe: Genome Engineering in a Brave New World

From the event organizer:

“The Community Engagement program of the Clinical and Translational Science Institute of Southeast Wisconsin will hold a series of Science Cafes at the UWM Innovation Campus that are free and open to the public.

The fall series wraps up November 18th with a presentation by Aron Geurts, Ph.D., associate professor of physiology at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Dr. Geurts uses a variety of engineered proteins to modify the genomes of rats, zebra fish and other animals. By ‘knocking in’ or ‘knocking out’ specific genes, he creates useful new animal models that can be used to study hypertension and renal disease.”
