Gene editing using a technique called CRISPR to edit and replace defective genes is increasingly important in cancer research, but there are many barriers to using it for directly treating patients. A new researcher at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Research Center hopes to understand more about how CRISPR works, with the goal of enabling the development of precision personalized medicine for cancer therapy.
Structural biologist Fuguo Jiang was recruited in 2018 from the University of California, Berkeley, where he was a postdoctoral fellow, with the help of a First-Time Tenure-Track Award from CPRIT.
