#80: Mosquitoes. The Serial Killers of Nature. Should We Make Them Go Away? Important, Not Important

    • Science

In Episode 80, Quinn & Brian discuss Quinn’s wife’s least favorite thing: Mosquitoes!
Our guest is Dr. Natalie Kofler, a trained scientist and the founding director of Editing Nature at Yale University, a global initiative to steer responsible development and deployment of environmental genetic technologies. Dr. Kofler’s work navigates the technical, ecological, and ethical complexity of gene editing applications designed to impact wild species, such as CRISPR-edited mosquitoes to prevent malaria transmission.
Dr. Kofler shares a deep level of technical understanding, paired with a heaping helping of compassion and nuance that is really something to behold. We are so happy she’s one of the people leading us into the future, and leading by a much-needed example.
