JCI’s Conversations with Giants in Medicine: George Church


The geneticist, innovator, and entrepreneur George Church, of Harvard and MIT, developed the methods for the first genome sequencing, and his subsequent work has brought down the price of sequencing over 10-million-fold. His was one of the two research groups that first got CRISPR-Cas9 to work for precise gene editing in human cells by a homologous recombination, and he has been behind countless other scientific innovations and disruptions, specifically in the world of precision genome sequencing.
