In this episode, Prof. Yoram Weiss, acting director general of Hadassah Medical Organization, talks about personalized medicine and his goals for revolutionizing cancer treatment — including the use of stem cells to create transplantable organs, utilizing nanotechnology in attacking cancer cells, and CRISPR technology in “rewriting” the human genome.
