Antonio Regalado


A journalist shares the inside story of what it’s like to report on the cutting-edge of reprogenetics, including the scoops that first brought to light “stembryos,” CRISPR babies, DNA-based IQ tests and attempts to assess the future of IVF embryos using polygenic scores. And yes, Dr. Frankenstein will take your call. Have your notepads ready!
