New solutions could save 20 million lives by 2050
Good job, Fawzi.
It would be good to resolve the scourge of malaria and your report today is encouraging in that regard
The gene editing approach can well be expected to be achievable given today’s advances in science. However the offsetting risks of unknown down stream effects on nature are potentially huge and too big a price to pay.
I’m therefore more inclined towards the vaccine and other methods approaches.
While these may be more difficult and time-consuming to implement than gene editing, the avoidance of the downside risks of the gene approach make that extra effort worthwhile
