At the Innovative Genomics Institute, our delegates had the privilege of being introduced to the groundbreaking work of Nobel Laureate Jennifer Doudna, who is pioneering genome engineering through the use of CRISPR technology to address global challenges in healthcare, climate change, and sustainable agriculture. It is impressive to understand innovative genome editing technology used to enhance the resilience of crops such as cocoa, sorghum, and rice against disease and drought. Exciting discussions also took place between Malaysian biotechnology startups and the IGI regarding potential collaborations to develop CRISPR genome editing treatments for diseases in Southeast Asia while also providing IGI with a multiracial data bank.
Meanwhile, the visit to the Hass School of Business highlighted innovative and lean methodologies for startups to scale exponentially, particularly in the underserved sectors of the Southeast Asian community. These industrial visits served as a powerful reminder of the remarkable innovations, research, and groundbreaking technologies emerging from Silicon Valley, which are poised to shape the future of various industries across the globe.
