Your advance Subscriber edition of October/November MPNform is now available.

https://mpnforum.com/cold-springs-harbor-labs-special-report/

It has been a year since the first MPN gene editing CRISPR reports… and what a year it has been for medical advances. In this Special Report from last week’s Cold Spring Harbor Lab meeting: The CRISPR.Cas Revolution, we cover some of it.  You’ll find a lot to be hopeful about.

There’s the new generation of CRISPR tools, Cpf1 introduced by Feng Zhang… There are reports of the first wildly successful clinical trials of gene-edited blood,,,There’s the upcoming MPN Research Foundation-sponsored seminar at ASH, gene editing for MPN stem cell transplant…(so if we need a stem cell transplant we can receive our own edited blood.) And more…. Plus have a look at the dark Eugenics past of CHSL…. And Dr. Jerry Spivak (John Hopkins) responds to the Dollars for Docs article…

More than usual, PLEASE send me any notable typos or errors you might find before we publish tomorrow. This issue was produced under extreme pressure, covers a lot of territory, and is still being proofread.  (ourMPNforum@gmail.com)

As ever the “Return to contents” link won’t work until the issue is published.

Thanks for your help, enjoy the issue

Zhen

    I did not spot errors/omissions/typos. I know proofing the written word is fraught. Truly appreciate this special report. Thank you and one and all for your constant and dedicated efforts.
