Professor Igor Slukvin and colleagues use gene-editing technologies to advance studies on HIV cure

Pathology and Lab Medicine Professor Igor Slukvin and colleagues at UW–Madison’s Wisconsin National Primate Research Center and Schools of Veterinary Medicine and Medicine and Public Health have employed CRISPR to edit the DNA in newly fertilized embryos of cynomolgus macaque monkeys. The group studied a mutant form of the CCR5 gene that has been associated with resistance to HIV infection in humans.
