There are a few separate groups working on this, this week we’re talking to ViaCyte to get past the hype and look at the real progress here.

You’ll hear from ViaCyte’s Head of Clinical Development Dr. Manasi Jaiman. ViaCyte has been studying stem cell transplants for several years – and recently started working with the gene editing technology CRISPR. We’re going to talk about what this is all about, how close they really are, and who would even be in line to benefit.
