OMAHA, Neb. (August 6, 2018)—UNeMed’s tech transfer podcast, “Innovation Overground,” published this morning its latest episode, “The CRISPR episode.”

In the latest episode, Overground hosts Joe Runge, Tyler Scherr and Charlie Litton, discuss a gene editing tool, CRISPR, its popularity within science fiction and its practical uses out here in reality. The Overground crew talks about what CRISPR is, what it can and can’t do, and have some fun with rampaging mutants and superheroes.

The episode also features Easi-CRISPR a tool jointly invented at UNMC and the University of Tokai. The crew discusses how Easi-CRISPR makes genome editing remarkably better.

Innovation Overground was created to help promote academic innovation and the technology transfer and commercialization efforts at the University of Nebraska and beyond. The podcast intends to examine what it takes to advance academic inventions and discoveries beyond the research bench and into people’s lives as “actual things on a shelf.”
