BBC Radio interviews for Dr Euan Ashley, Professor of Medicine and Genetics at Stanford University
Dr Euan Ashley, Professor of Medicine and Genetics at Stanford University and one of the pioneers in the application of gene sequencing in medicine, has been interviewed by the BBC.
Dr Ashley spoke with BBC Radio Scotland and BBC Radio Merseyside about the rapid progress being made in the field of genetic-based medicine.
In particular, he predicts that a groundbreaking new vaccine based on the DNA code of Olympic athletes and other ‘superhumans’ could be available within a decade.
This treatment promises to transform society by providing lifelong protection against three of the top 10 leading causes of death: heart disease, stroke, and Alzheimer’s disease.
