Welcome to the Science on the edge website

This website supports the science on the edge podcast. Our series of podcasts covers topics as divers as genetic engineering, the CRISPR Cas9 gene editing technology (together with other gene editing tools such as retro-viruses, liposomes etc), stem cell research, neuroscience, food supplements (separating the facts from the marketing jargon) and even a little philosophy.

If you’re interested in science, with a definite skew towards the most cutting edge and controversial breakthroughs, then this is the podcast for you!

The site will also increasingly share and discuss links to science papers that push the boundaries of our knowledge.

Enjoy the site!
