The Harvard Club of Beijing invites you to join fellow Beijing alumni to attend Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard Symposium on November 3.

The Theme of this symposium is A CRISPR case study in worldwide transformation of bio-discovery and commerce. CRISPR, a bacterial immune system, has been repurposed and engineered to provide the tools to precisely edit genomes with unparalleled simplicity and flexibility, resulting in a research revolution. This breakthrough gene editing technology was first demonstrated in eukaryotes in Science, on January 3, 2013 and since then it has already become a foundational tool for cancer, infectious disease and mental health research and is inspiring a multitude of promising biotech start-ups.
