Humans in a Dish
Join biologist Aparna Venkatesh as she gives us a glimpse of cutting edge stem cell research. Aparna specializes in genome editing, which can eliminate disease-causing mutations by changing the underlying genetic code. She is currently doing groundbreaking research on Down syndrome, seeking solutions to the genetic mutation.
Recorded at INK2015, Mumbai
