US scientists study gene editing in human embryos using CRISPR

A study led by Shoukhrat Mitalipov at Oregon Health and Science University is using CRISPR gene-editing technology to alter the DNA of embryos. The objective of the experiments is a process called "germline engineering" as a means to correct or eradicate genes that are the source of inherited diseases such as beta-thalassemia.
