Hello! My name is Nilesh Kumar and my Polygence Project is about the medical applications of CRISPR/Cas9, involving a detailed review of current clinical trials and future directions of the technology. I chose this topic because I've always been fascinated by the idea of genetic engineering and the complexities of molecular biology. The ability to modify a human genome as a potential therapeutic means is incredible! After college, I hope to study medicine or become an entrepreneur.
