Symposium: Genome Editing and Manipulation

With the advance and progress of genome editing technology, that reshapes the neuroscience among other fields.  The genome manipulation becomes easier and accessible, which was hard to achieve or even impossible in the past.  In order to increase the exchange of scientists in the field, Tsinghua McGovern for brain research hosted a one day symposium and hoped the idea exchange would nourish the future collaboration between groups, and stimulate brilliant ideas to better understand and prevent the diseases.
