Genetically engineered mosquitoes to eradicate disease

As scientists explore the potential application of gene editing, they’re beginning to discover the many uses — and pitfalls — of the technology. In the case of malaria and other vector-borne illnesses, it’s become clear that gene editing could be a powerful new tool for mosquito control and disease eradication. At a live panel recorded at The Forum at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, four experts discussed gene editing and how it might influence global and human health.
