Despite being the first molecular disease ever discovered, and despite being the most common genetic disease in the US, sickle cell disease (SCD), a disease that predominantly affects people from African descent, is still a truly devastating disease with no universal cure. Long under- and unequally-served by the medical and research communities, SCD is getting renewed attention as CRISPR researchers set their sights on finally curing this disease with gene editing.
