Cool Science Radio - June 7, 2018 - Dr. Brian Ward

Jun 7, 2018

Our guest, local geneticist Dr. Brian Ward,  joins the show. Ward is the founder and principal of Advantage Genomics Consulting, a Park City-based company. Ward has spent a lifetime exploring the most recent advances in genetics: how genetics can help us target specific cancers, how we can edit genes to produce healthier and stronger species and what the ethical considerations are of doing that. He joins us to talk about how the focused work with genetics can help us identify genetic abnormalities earlier in the hopes of correcting the course, in identifying victims or even perpetrators of crime, and much more.
