Dr. Church is referred to as the “Father of Synthetic Biology” because of his discoveries in the sequencing and editing of genomes.

His laboratories use of CRISPR CAS-9 is the latest contender for precise gene therapy that has the potential to eliminate inherited disease and perhaps even dramatically slow down the aging process.

What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
