"Before we bid you view for today. The, uh let's see here. Ginger gerbils back to ginger gurgles because I got it audience. Rachel Levine. That name should sound familiar to you if she was in charge of the health Department up in Pennsylvania. Transgender Dr Rachel Levin. She's was a man. Now she's She looks like Bruce Vilanch. If you know who Bruce Vilanch is. But she has been nominated to be the deputy secretary of how health and human services under Joe Biden, because why not honestly? Dr Rachel. She just checks a box. Rachel Levine checks a box And so, Yeah. Okay. Well, we can appoint a transgender person will be super duper inclusive. The problem is That Rachel Levine oversaw the decimation of the nursing homes in Pennsylvania. 12,000 deaths, half the states total. Came from nursing homes in Pennsylvania as a direct result of the governor up there, Tom Wolfe and Rachel Levin's plan their executive order that insisted that ordered nursing homes. To take in covert positive patients. Now, if that sounds familiar to you, that's because that's exactly what happened in New York. Also exactly what happened in Michigan. It's exactly what happened in New Jersey. The places with the highest death totals particularly concentrated where more than half of their deaths Or roughly half of their deaths are in nursing homes were as a direct result of liberal Democrats. Ordering covert positive patients into nursing homes. There's really no getting around it right now. Andrew Cuomo is being investigated criminally allegedly Because of that, and the attempts to hide his complete and total failure and fumble on this thing, and Joe Biden goes and nominates somebody who did the same thing. In Pennsylvania. What's worse, actually about what Dr Rachel Levin did in Pennsylvania is Dr Rachel Levin's mother lived in a nursing home. As Dr Rachel. Avi, I assume everybody has got a Ph. D s different. It's the Joe Biden Room. Dr. Rachel Levine. As Dr Rachel Levin was signing this executive order and implementing this executive order and reassuring the people of Pennsylvania that there was nothing to fear about this executive order that everybody is going to be safe. Don't worry about it. If you've got a loved one, a nursing home Dr Rachel Levine Woz pulling Dr Rachel Levin's mother out of a nursing home. Have that very same moment. Well, it's like telling everybody that the food is fun that, though don't worry that the food is not poisoned at all. As you're taking your full plate of food of which you haven't had a single bite and scraping it into the garbage and throwing it away and then quickly scrubbing your hands. No, no. Nothing to fear from this food. It's perfectly fun. Why aren't you eating? It will just just shut up. Ginger gerbils was asked about this yesterday, and her answer was rather dismissive. To say the least. Cut seven go ahead. Anyone more actual living in her confirmation is not a lot of opposition from Republicans specifically about the cove in nursing home scandal. She's implicated in Pennsylvania for signing the directive on May 18th while taking her own mother out of the nursing home. There was only 12,000 senior deaths. That's half of the death of a Jackson. Hello, Vania. This is the same scandal that hobo is facing in New York and the governor of Pennsylvania is under investigation. So what is the What is your administration feel that Rachel Levine should get a pass on this and get such a high official position as a healthy human services department? I have to look into more specifics of the detail his here It does not sound it all to me like the Similar that her scenarios similar to the scenario in New York, but we'll follow up with youth with more to offer. I love it. It doesn't sound anything like the situation in New York. Yeah, it's very similar. Except instead of covering up the numbers of dead in New York the way that Cuomo did for his own political gain. Dr Rachel Levine Took Dr Rachel Levin's mother out of a nursing home for their own personal gain. So it's it's different. One was for political gain. The other one was to keep somebody's mother alive. While lying to the public about it. But the last bit of the end was a well I'll look into it. And if we have anything more to say about we're not gonna Not she doesn't care. The White House doesn't care. Joe Biden doesn't care. Rachel Levine saved Rachel Levin's mother. While sentencing 12,000, Pennsylvania senior citizens to death. By forcing them to take in covert positive patients for whom they were not ready or capable of. They're not nursing homes while they can administer, you know, blood clue ghost levels and maybe do some basic Care that you know any sort of staffer could learn to do. They are not trained medical personnel. That was the fatal flaw in these Democrats plans. And so stopping a highly contagious virus that impacts the elderly. In a nursing home scenario was already going to be a tough lift. And they sent them in there. Deliberately callously. Didn't matter. Meanwhile, Dad we'll see what happens with Dr Rachel Levine. Meanwhile, down in Washington, D C. There was a hearing about D C. Statehood. We'll have more to say about this. In the future as this moves forward, But Mayor Muriel Bowser was asked by Congressman Fred Keller of Keller of Pennsylvania. About? Well, you want D C state because they're all waiting. We're not represented with taxation without representation. Then she was asked. Would you want it? Would you like it If we got rid of the taxation, she said no. Which I think is insane. But they also said Fred Keller said, How about we just see you back to Maryland? Now I get it is a Maryland resident. I don't think we need to make the state any bluer. But then again, the state can get really any bluer. Mariel Bowser wants to be governor. She wants to be governor. So she shoots that idea. Down. Cut nine. Go ahead. What D C work to registry back to Maryland. Allowing D C citizens represent representation in both the House and the Senate. When that give them representation. We were not. Residents of Maryland congressman were residents of Washington D. C. Yes, you are a federal district. That is not a state that is explicitly not a state. In the Constitution. You what do you want? You want everything. You can't have it. It's that simple. Seated back to Maryland. That's where it came from Washington's property George Washington's property. He donated it to create the capital city, the federal city that was never ever intended to be a state. It should never, ever be allowed to be a state. It's not a prison if you demand representation. Move, period. But then I'm heartless withheld. Oh, I know that's all the time we have for today. Thank you for listening. I'll see you tomorrow..

"Wonder what they'd call Dr Rachel Levin, then. You think she'll ever happened? Ever have to go over there and all I hope? Oh, I sure hope Chairman she and Dr Levin have a little health summit. Oh, yeah, I'd love for Dr Levin to, uh, to sit and talk with the chairman about Transgender issues. What? What was it? Dr Levin told Rand Paul last week. About genital let it go into the record that the witness refused to answer the question. The question is a very specific one. Should minors be making these momentous decisions from most of the history of medicine? We wouldn't let you have a cut sewn up in the E R. But you're willing to let a minor take things that prevent their puberty and you think they get that back. You give a woman testosterone enough that she grows a beard? You think she's gonna go back looking like a woman? When you stop the testosterone? You have permanently changed them. Infertility is another problem. None of these drugs have been approved for this. They're all being used off label. I find it ironic that the left that went nuts over Are not alarm that these hormones are being used off label. There's no long term studies. We don't know what happens to him. We do know that there are dozens and dozens of people have been through this who who regret this happening in a permanent change happen to them? Yeah, that Z Rand Paul, who was excoriated for being Transphobic last week, just for raising a medical issue. I wonder out Chairman G. Would address such an issue. I mean, since their court ruled homosexuality. A mental disorder. I wonder. Wonder how they'd come down on what Dr Paul was saying last week to Dr Levin. Yeah, On what does our president president asterisk? Was so friendly with those Chinese. I wonder what he'll have to say about this. Will he come out and announce that strongly today? Hold my breath. 61 Oh 8 50 09 90. Pennsylvania Republicans have voted to rebuke Senator Pat Toomey, but stopped short of a formal censure. Do we care the narrow GOP vote yesterday or Monday, I guess after technical problems derail the effort last week Crystallized. Some of the anger at to me reflected Trump's tight grip. Is. He positions himself as the party's dominant force in the coming years. But it also showed Fisher's as some trump supporters were left furious that the party didn't approve a censure. After me. We are outraged that Senator Toomey took part in an impeachment process that facilitated Democrats tireless obsession with partisan political retribution, read the statement approved by the Pennsylvania Republican Party in a vote of the State Committee members. The statement was one of two options that they voted on the other included formal center of to me. So they opted to not formally censure him as they did say, Liz Cheney back in Wyoming. Comey's office declined to comment on the vote to rebuke the senator. Democrats used impeachment is a political weapon, which set a dangerous precedent in America. And Senator Toomey did not stand in their way, the winning GOP statement said. We oppose the senator's actions in the strongest terms, but we have faith the voters will properly address public officials who do not satisfactorily represent the best interests of the nation. What is the harm in centering a guy who's leaving? I mean, isn't this ironic? This is the problem with the Pennsylvania GOP. They can't see fit to censure. A guy who's leaving. Yeah, he saw fit to vote to convict on impeachment. A guy who's gone Just let that settle in. Let me say that again. Because it's so stupid. You need to hear it twice. Pennsylvania GOP couldn't see fit to censure A guy who's leaving office. Center, a guy who's leaving office. And censure him for voting to impeach convict and impeach a guy who's already left office. Hello. Mrs Song. Hello? Nothing makes sense. Everything is stupid. Everything is stupid, and nothing makes sense. This is a very simple slam dunk a ball easy thing. You send your him you sent for him and you let him know. You know what? You're on your way out the door. You've clearly quit. You're showing your true stripes. You don't matter anymore. You don't care about us. You don't represent us. You're being a petulant little bitch. And we're going to tell you what we think of that. We sent your you That's what you do if your men and women in the Pennsylvania GOP But no, they stop short. Because.

"Abrams said hers was stolen. It's okay for Democrats to say the election was stolen, but not for Republicans to question the integrity and this double standard. It just you know, it's what infuriates people because we need to judge it with one standard, not a different standard for Republicans than we do for Democrats. Lastly, Senator Rand Paul, the great state of Kentucky. I enjoyed having your father on many times, and one of the things he concerned about Ron Paul greatly was government surveillance. And after 9 11 happened, there was a massive federal intrusion into our freedoms and opportunities because of the Patriot Act, etcetera that you voted against a couple times and it's reunification years later and then set Now we have more cries of Biden and the left is and I think Biden is old and frail and not in charge. And he's being manipulated by those around him. That government surveillance is going to go on steroids again to root out these so called right wing so white supremacist groups wherever they might be. Are you concerned as your father was for 24 years about that? Very much so and I've talked with talked it over with my father is well, they're gonna have some kind of domestic terrorism bill, And at first glance, you'll say, Well, I'm against domestic terrorism. I'm against Timothy McVeigh and these idiots who blew up the courthouse in Oklahoma. Absolutely. But what if they make the definition of a domestic terrorist? Someone who questions the election or thinks that the election was unfair? What if they say somebody teaches their kids at home or somebody who's a right wing? You know, radio host or Fox News or one American news? That's what they're saying. You actually have congressman now threatening the cable companies and saying, You can't carry these voices. It is basically voices they disagree with, so we need to be very, very careful. They start talking about domestic terrorism. What they mean by violence is one thing but advocating a political philosophy. Actually, the philosophy our founding fathers If that's terrorism, we need to run headlong the other way. Are you running for re election next year? I am. I'll be up in 2022. I'm glad the virus is getting less common out there. And so we're getting out more and starting to travel in the next couple of weeks will hopefully be all over Kentucky and hopefully up in your region soon. Senator Rand. Paul. Thank you. And thanks for coming again on the Bill Cunningham show Stay strong. I love it when you speak. I know your questions is Dr Rachel Levin have been twisted into a pretzel that somehow you're against the individuals with some disorders that I have to be corrected in life. And and they're comparing genital mutilation of a three year old that those air improper questions, But that's exactly what we're talking about. You can't speak freely about what exactly it is. If it's politically incorrect, and Senator Rand Paul once again thank you for coming on the Bill Cunningham show. Thank you. Thanks Film. Fine. Let's continue with more one other thought. Is, uh, the $1.9 Trillion. The train is on the track about a about a trillion or $800 billion has left unspent so far, and the last acts that cares act that went through in the pee pee. In the PPE about $800 billion is left unspent. And so sometime in the next several days, the Congress likely is going to vote $1.9 trillion more. In government assistance when the economy is recovering. When the stock market is at an all time high. When Jane J. Has been approved now flow vaccines, they're going to flood the market. We're gonna have a cement is 300 Million vaccines available by April 1st. Gonna flood the market. And so this is a solution in search of a problem If the other monies have not been spent, why in the world what America go back into dead an additional almost $2 trillion, pushing our national debt toe over 30 trillion, when all the money previously Put out into the marketplace is not yet been used. So let's continue with more of a line becomes available. 18666477337 bill coming in the Great American Live with you every Sunday night.

"Is the first day of winter and it It can almost feels like we've been in an existentially winter for the past 11, whatever, 10 months since March. I remember when I was here the last time it was July and we had been going through this for a couple of months at that point, and it was still people were still trying to it felt New ish, and people were still trying to navigate what was going on. Now. It's almost like people are just so tired. We're so tired of the default being Make sure you don't lose your mask. You know, people running back into their houses. They don't forget their masks, staying 6 ft. Apart, going to the store and knowing the things air are you know you're not gonna be able to find what you wanted on the shelves, restaurants being closed the holiday. I was walking through Philadelphia last night, and it just it felt really sad. Just I was walking by Wanamaker's, and I haven't yet gotten to Wanamaker's Macy's. For those of you who did not grow up in the Philadelphia area to see the light show. I do hope that the show is is there of those of you out there. If anybody can let me know whether or not there's their light show is on, Um let me know, but it just felt sad. It felt darker. And I'm really hoping that we can just have some brighter, brighter days and I think we will. I do want to circle back before the end of the hour to talk about something very, very briefly that I sort of referenced before the beginning of the hour, and that has to do With this whole idea of people wanting to be called by personal pronoun certain ways. They wanna be respected in their own particular way. That's okay. Except when we start taking in northern, an offense over things that Really should not be considered firing offenses or capital offenses and what I'm really referring to is something that the August regular host of this show the Great Crystal Gaul went through last week. Chris was criticized by Ah bunch of people, including newspaper editors and LGBT activists, because he Conducted what I thought was rather comical and kind of clever. A commentary about Rachel Live in the Secretary of Health of Pennsylvania, Rachel Levin has done so much damage to the psyche. Fill of Pennsylvanians and to the economy of Pennsylvania with a lot of what appear to be random edicts that don't apply to everyone, including not to her own mother. Um And has caused some real damage. And yet Chris Who commented on a rather comical sign that described Rachel Live in as a man in a dress. Okay. Not nice. Not polite. She is transgender identifies as a woman. Um, but He did a little bit of a riff on that any called her. I think he referred to her as what was it? Eddie cousin, isn't it? Um and all of a sudden, you know, he's a homophobe, and he's a transphobic. And there were articles written about it. And there was, you know, One particular article was used as a source for another article, and they never even reached out to crystal ball for a commentary about it, and that really angers me. First of all my dad used to call me cousin it all. Time because I used to have hair that would fall in front of my face. And you could barely hear me speaking and I was your daddy would call me cousin ITT. I didn't take offensive that honestly.

"He will definitely do now. We go from one not in Regina to another nut in In whitmer in Michigan Year. What she's doing now. She was asked about the protesters in her state on the view. I mean this is scary. Scary tyrant listen to this. What we're doing is working. So these protests they do undermine the effort and it's very clearly a political statement that is playing out where people are coming together from across the state. They are congregating. They're not wearing masks. They're not saying six feet apart and then they go home into communities and the risk of perpetuating the spread of covid nineteen is real. We've seen it happen. And that's why in a while I respect people's right to dissent. They need to do it in a way that is responsible and does not put others at risk. No she just doesn't want you to descend at all. They're not standing six feet apart. This is a woman by the way coughed. Her hand will doing a press conference and said allergies. Kept ON GOING. So He's supposed to call from your elbow so she claims also there there. There were Nazi symbols. There I've seen videos the Nazi symbols. Were brandishing her as Hitler which is why they love to do about trump but she trying to control the population. Which is what Hitler did. That's why Democrats is a right wing. Nazi no they're left wing Nazis. But she takes out of context here. Go listen to this while I do think that the fact of the matter is these protests. you know in a in a perverse way. Make It likelier that we're going to have to stay in a stay home posture. The whole point of them supposedly is that they don't want to be doing that. And that's why I'm asking that everyone the platform call on people to do the right thing. These have been These have been really political rallies where people come with confederate flags than Nazi symbolism and calling for violence this is not appropriate in a global pandemic. But it certainly not an exercise a democratic principles where we have free speech. This calls to violence. The says are racist and misogynist again. I ask that everyone who has a platform use it to call on people to observe the best practices promulgated by the CDC and did she get mad at all the anti-trump people with signs. That said trump. Is Hitler. Sure she had no problem with that. But now it's racist misogynistic Yen Ryan Antifa ANTIFA. Yup Yup. You're you nailed it dude. You nailed it now. Let's just play the the trump greatest hits. You gotTa love this Let's do number eighteen. Eighteen huge this morning. Maria Bartiromo trump. This is phenomenal and I hope they go to jail. I really do they not but he did. They break the law or do they just abused their powers at breaking law. I think more got out. It's going to come out Andy Biggs was great on while the interview opened about ten minutes. A candidacy dot com on an eight. Oh five listen to this year ago. Here's the they weren't after General Flynn. They wanted him to lie about me. Make up a story and with few exceptions. Nobody did that. Do many people I watched. Kt McFarland the other day. I watch where she was. Knock knock. Fbi The FBI okay. This was all Obama. This will biden. These people were corrupt. The whole thing was corrupt and we caught them. We caught them. And what you saw. Just now I watched Biden yesterday. Could barely speak. He was on Good Morning America right and he said he didn't know anything about it and now it just gets released right after. He said that gets released that he was one of the unmask irs. Meaning he knew everything about it so he lied to your friend. George Stephanopoulos he did he. Did He knew it? All you knew it. All we'll continue. I have another one another one. That is incredible. Did you hear about this? This in Pennsylvania. They have a Health Director for the State of Pennsylvania. Dr Rachel Levin Apparently Dr Rachel Wien said there's nothing wrong with Care FACILITIES BLAH BLAH. Moved her mother out of that while she said it's okay and safe to be there but there's something more. I watched the video yesterday of this Doctor Levin. I thought something was a little bit strange. I now have confirmation Dr Rachel Levin just had a meltdown in a press conference. Wait you find out why. Oh my goodness got to end the show. This way it's coming up morning. Ritual Lewis T. am seven ninety. Two's you gotTA look priorities. Don't you dare Lewis with you? Can T am seven hundred? Tucson's most stimulating talk about looking to be ninety today. Enjoy that ninety two tomorrow and yes I got an email yes We are a downward trajectory positive. Tests versus tests hospital beds out the Wazoo and yes pima county trying to put restaurants and businesses out of business. That's what they do here. That's what they do here now. I'm watching and I'm reading. I find out in in Pennsylvania. They bed Democrat governors keeping everything locked down and they have a health director that I just be honest. I was looking like nets and ugly woman. That's a woman doctor. Hiv and ugly woman. And apparently. This H Levine. Trouble moved her mother out of her senior care facility before before she could get infected with the Chinese virus and then announced her couple of days ago all this day would begin testing nursing home residents and caregivers regularly so she knew that her mother was in danger. Here's the thing is a transgender. There's a headline daily wire transgender Pennsylvania Health director meltdown in press conference after a reporter calls her six times six times. I I want you. I want the and it was apparently a radio show host and or a reporter host but apparently the the Mayor Pittsburgh is Mad. Canceled the interview. Who's supposedly on that station as punishment? Ooh What punishment that is right so people are dying all over the place. You're mad that you look like a Guy Rachel Levin what is what is Rachel Levin. Sound like just listen here. We go can afternoon. Here's our latest update on covert nineteen in Pennsylvania. Sounds like a guy as of twelve. Am this morning. We have eight hundred and thirty. Seven new cases of Barrio. Sounds like a guy looks like a guy is called Sir. The person apologized people. People are literally they are. They're literally losing their lives out there and and this. This person is transgender. Person is upset that they were culture. That's the that's what bothers me more than anything else melted down. You're doing this on purpose. The guy was doing six things at once.

Leading St. Jude's Genome Engineering Capabilities: A Chat with Shondra Miller

"Welcome Shandra Thick. You must be here all right so I would like to ask you about what you do. Junior current research on. Maybe about a little bit about your background as well. Yeah so I've been doing engineering. Basically my whole scientific career so I did my PhD on Singer. Nicholas which is kind of like the grandfather of Christopher Gas Ninety Will Matthew Portas lab and so we were at the time just doing protein engineering trying to get zinc finger. Proteins NUCLEAR ACES ACTUALLY. Cut some specific site in the genome. And it's sad thing now but I spent five years basically making a pair of glasses that gop so very exciting at the time but it really became outdated and so then after graduate school. I went directly into industry. I worked for Sigma Aldrich on their composers of technology. Where we're doing the offense and it was exciting time in genome editing. Because for me especially because I had been doing protein engineering and then I was able to go to sigma and they would give us the proteins and we actually do genome editing for the first time really. I was able to like okay. I want to make this point mutation. How do we do it? And we were able to do. Some of the first different types of editing so like with food chain Chen we published a paper. Where using singles trying to all go donors. Almost everybody uses now. We were one of the first to do that. We can do with high efficiency losing figuring places and so then in two thousand twelve so pre crisper still. I decided that I wanted to start. Asia resource at the Times inferior increases. Were so expensive. That people weren't really able to access them especially in academic so I think the Times in cases where like twenty five thousand dollars just to plasmids so you couldn't actually do your editing editing to get yoursel- liner animal model. So it was frustrating to me is like this is game changing technology. People people need access to this. This is going to change science as we know it and so I actually went to Washington University and I put the idea of starting to share resources. Said you know. People don't want to become genome engineering experts. They want their cell line. They WanNa make do a screen. They want their animal model. They WANNA continue asking the questions that they are experts and they just want the tool for the most part. So let's start a resource. Let's be the genome engineering. Experts will help other people expedite science at Wash U. in and around the world and so we started that it's called the engineering IPSEC center. It's still going strong G. I see there and then in two thousand seventeen. I got a call from Saint Jude. And they were like. Hey we want to start something like what you're doing that Wash U. as I said no I'm not interested at the time I was actually six months pregnant with my second child. I'm had started This core the see from there was like my first child. Not My biology child. Something that I cared about the people and what we were doing so it was really not very interested in. They said we'll consult for us in How to get this thing going and short story long. I guess I ended up moving to Saint. You'd because it's kind of a really special place to do research as like a magic fairy tale land to do research especially for a shared resource so we actually given dedicated. Rnd Time and we're institutionally subsidized and so on most Groups Shared resources pay their own way so basically the services that they provide pay their salaries paid for the reagents that they're using but at Saint Jude. They say no. We're GONNA guarantee your salaries we're gonNA give you money to actually do the science that you need to do to help everybody at Saint Jude. So you don't have to worry about that. Just do good science. So that's very freeing. And then the ability to have a dedicated are indeed budget. So we're like okay. We're going to not only do genome editing. For other people were GONNA add back to the field and and keep at the forefront of it so I know that was a really long answer five. That's how backgrounds and doing a lot of genome editing. The events Talen crisper over the last fifteen years or so. That's great. Could you tell us about a couple of your research projects that you have gone? Yeah so we do a lot of things to improve efficiency. We have some ideas about how to get longer inserts and two so one of the things that's really hard crisper is when you're trying to knock something in fairly easy to do something. Small appoint mutation or five tag but it gets more difficult as the insert increases so Rachel Levin in the lab. She's working on how to get longer inserts and increasing their overall rates of HDR something. Saint Peter's in the lab is working on some strategies for enriching the donor concentration in the nucleus. And I think one of the most exciting things that we're working on is a cure sickle cell initiative basically. Where they're you know. Saint Jude. It's a research hospital. We actually have our large sickle cell population in Memphis. I think there's about eight hundred sickle cell patients that we see at Saint Jude. And so send you actually partnered with several other groups not only at Saint Jude but also outside of Saint Jude. So we basically worked towards making therapeutic for sickle cell disease and Mitch Weiss Option Darsi and myself from Saint Jude Consortium. And so we're we're really looking forward. Hopefully going to a therapeutic In the coming years and so that's why the more exciting things that we're doing this more closely related to the Translational medicine wonder. How can you tell us a little bit about just different technologies age with Chris? Frightening so you tried like classmates. How did you come across it? The goers that Rene has ever feel y'all so we actually remain your own guide. Ernie's for five years. We WOULD MOSTLY DO PLASMA. Cloning where we played together you cut the backbone with type. Two S restrictions. I'm basically pop them in like into the planet and that works but it takes probably like four hours of hands on time ish or of about three to five days and so whenever we saw that you could do synthetic guides I guess the limitation was people were able to synthesize the long Arnaiz right. So I think that that's where something kind of burst on the scene and so that we saw that was attractive to us but we needed to be able to do it quickly right so we can make these platforms fairly quickly. Do also do. Ib Tea and make that fairly quickly. The synthetics at the time you know there are companies that were doing it but it was very expensive. You get quite a lot and we don't really need a lot. We have a lot of smaller projects that we're doing. It took too long for us right. So we're trying to make cell lines for folks. We're trying to make animal models for folks so we don't have to wait a month to get the guide so that's why we were making them ourselves so so they go came on the scene. I think we started. We made our first order to go in October. Two Thousand Seventeen. Basically gave us a quick turnaround time. I think we were like Beta testing small to smaller scale early on and so from then. I guess this history of doing this. Cloning bacterial colonies and doing many. Perhaps you're able to do make more cell lines and made more animal models and do more research. Christopher is a relatively young technology but it's made a pretty big impact as you've mentioned already. What do you think the next five years will look like in? Where do you think the field is heading? That's it's an interesting question. I guess there's two or three or four different areas that you think about I think about basic science and experimental biology. How can we do things more efficiently to make cell lines that people can understand biological processes or ask for biological question? So I'm usually thinking about research purposes. I think it's only getting faster. More efficient and cheaper which is really democratizing research. A lot of different ways I think crisper has been probably the biggest discovery understanding how to do crisper since like I think it will science face a science as much. Pr Has Changed Science. Maybe more you think about therapeutics there'd be trial we're going on with Christopher Pasadena. Think people starting with blood stuff because they can get to the stem cells in their starting with is stuff because they can get to the right cells so I think one of the biggest limitation to Crisper as far as there is delivery. How do you get it to the right cells So I think that's a limitation? I don't know I guess I would really say the sky's the limit just the ability to be able to go into complex genome and make precise modifications huge. I think we're only going to get better S. nine in all the variants or the logs. Pretty darn good. We worry about off targets for research purposes. Were not outright about it. Because you know. We're studying a question for their buicks really important. But we've made such big advances since you think about two thousand twelve two thousand thirteen. It's just it's a whirlwind and you think about how you know. I think the offense really paved the way. But you know the offense where we use a million tells like nineteen ninety nine two thousand three but took two thousand three two thousand ten before we even Pat Talents and then new talents has a very short heyday. And then Chris Brazil Blown on the scene. I think there's huge diagnostics agriculture therapeutics. It's just it's kind of unlimited possibilities so I think we'll see in the next few years and we're seeing now. A lot of ethical questions people are asking. What should we do because we can do a lot of things? But what should we do? I think that that's one of the things that people will be discussing over the next few years
