I am a currently a PhD student at the Institute of Cardiovascular and Medical Sciences at UofG. Besides science, I love all kinds of sporty stuff (from bouldering to yoga), to wine and dine, but most of all to travel.

  1. Genetic Engineering is a set of technologies used to change the genetic makeup of cells, including the transfer of genes within and across species boundaries to produce improved or novel organisms. It will help to cure many genetic issues in future. Thank you for all these wonderful and informative blog. This will be very helpful for my research studies for Clinical research fellowship. This is very beneficial for me. Thank you once again. Keep sharing such informative blogs.

    Despite its futuristic outlook and results biohacking remains a largely unsupervised, dangerous if not illegal movement. Though the research and results produced by biohackers is ground breaking, it also breaks several ethical codes on human experimentation and endangering live of several humans.

      If we are doing it to ourselves then no one should be allowed to say anything about it. We understand the risks and most if not all of us make sure we have enough background to at least semi-know what we are doing to ourselves and how to do it unlike some of those attention-seeking idiots on youtube so the regards for ethical codes on human experimentation need to take a hike and shove off. If someone wants to be a part of an experiment then they should be allowed to. Don’t pharmaceutical companies do this on a regular basis along with doctors who use people as guinea pigs and give them 10 different prescriptions over a year or so to see what works and doesn’t work?
