Antibody Therapies in Cancer
Description: Antibody therapies have become incredibly popular for the treatment of diseases, including cancer. In cancer, it may be beneficial to prevent interaction of â€œimmune checkpointsâ€, which can inactivate T cells. Learn more with our podcast about some of the more popular antibody and nanobody treatments.

CRISPR and the Game of Patents
Description: CRISPR is an amazing technology originally discovered in bacteria as a defense mechanism against invading foreign genetic material. Researchers are now repurposing this for useful applications in like increasing crop size and treating diseases like HIV and cancer. Thereâ€™s a battle brewing over the CRISPR patents with millions in funds (and profit) at stake. Who will win own the rights to CRISPR technology? And is this work ethical?
