NYMC Students and Faculty Active Off Campus

February 24, 2017

New York Medical College said that students and a faculty member have been involved in projects off the college’s Valhalla campus. Stuart A. Newman, professor of cell biology and anatomy, traveled to the West Coast where he made a presentation during a workshop about “The Science of Genome Editing: Possibilities, Realistic Prospects and Principles of Approach.” It was at the University of California, Berkeley last month. The workshop was organized by Jennifer A. Doudna, a professor of chemistry and molecular and cell biology at UC Berkeley who is the co-inventor of the CRISPR technique. CRISPR is a technique for editing human genes. It has been used to cut and paste the genes of a key type of immune cell in experiments to protect the body from diseases ranging from diabetes to HIV and cancer.
