Innovation Overground rips one from the headlines: CRISPR babies


OMAHA, Neb. (Feb. 18, 2019)—UNeMed’s tech transfer podcast, “Innovation Overground,” published this morning its latest episode, “CRISPR Babies.”

In the latest episode, Overground hosts Joe Runge, Tyler Scherr and Charlie Litton, discuss a recent experiment in China where a “scientist” used CRISPR to modify a human. The crew roundly denounce those responsible while taking a closer look at the intellectual property associated with the original CRISPR patents.

The episode also features Easi-CRISPR an innovation developed at UNMC that makes CRISPR a more effective gene-editing tool.

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.”

New episodes are published on Mondays, and are available on most podcast channels, including Google Play Music, iTunes, iHeartMusic, Podomatic, Spotify and Spreaker.
