Sickle cell disease is a painful and debilitating genetic condition that affects over 100,000 people in the United States and more than 20 million globally—most of whom are Black or of African origin. It was considered a lifelong disease until 2019, when Victoria Gray became the first patient cured using CRISPR gene-editing technology.

Join us for our first "Students Talk Science" event, where high school students and alumni from the DNA Learning Center’s STARS program discuss sickle cell disease with Ms. Gray. She will share her experiences living with the disease, the challenges of treatment, and the newfound hope for patients with genetic disorders. Additionally, scientists and physicians will join the discussion to talk about health equity and the importance of making scientific knowledge and treatments accessible to all communities.
