As science continues to unravel the mysteries of the DNA double-helix, medicine is making incredible breakthroughs. This series uncovers the research and technology, creating therapies for disease, personalized medicine, and the role genomic data plays in aiding medical discoveries. With the pop-culture hype and general misunderstanding DNA has today, this series will dispel the myths, simplify the science and share real-world stories impacting the lives of our most precious patients—children.
Medicine Gets Personal
We reveal the opportunities our own DNA can provide for improving how we react to certain prescription medications, thanks to the medical revolution known as precision medicine.
New Horizons in Medicine
We look at how recent advances in genomic medicine like CRISPR-Cas9 technology and growing organs in a dish are one path to curing thousands of rare genetic disorders in children.
The Power of Numbers
We explore how three of the world's top children's hospitals work together in order to understand the complexity of DNA, and the potential for its data to serve all of humanity.
