Making CRISPR, a variation, or something similar, yes.
Gene therapies will be very powerful weapons in the war on disease.
We should spare no expense in advancing those technologies.
There are still flaws in CRISPR, but I believe they'll be worked out, in time.

My point is what it took to make Nancy see the facts. People are very unaware of why science matters. Politicians are as ignorant as most.

I guess they all have their own reasons, but generally speaking, all of the above.
Personally, I thought the Reagans were a couple of loonies.
I don't agree with all this "Great President" PR.
In my opinion, it was all manufactured to counter the Democrat's much exploited image of JFK.
They needed a hero like the Democrat's had, so they created one. They conveniently overlook the scandals, arrests, and convictions.
They even credit him with the collapse of the Soviet Union.
The USSR collapsed under it's own weight and bad governance.
It would have collapsed if Sophie Tucker happened to be the US President at the time.
The Reagan Administration exhibited poor judgement on numerous occasions. It's policy regarding some research being one of many examples.

I just wish I had away to make people comprehend that research matters to all of humanity. Are they too ignorant, short sighted or cheap?
Nancy Regan changed her mind and began supporting stem cell research because Ronnie had Alzheimer's.

"Shouldn’t making CRISPER work be a priority?" Reads fine to me, but I can change it to "working" if you want.

Remember, the Reagans had astrologers coming to the White House, so I'm not surprised they entertained some strange notions that became policy.

Kraven, I meant working. My eye is not great today. No clue why.
I agree we need to improve CRISPER, gene therapy and therapies that enhance our immunity. Israel and the U.S. are working on a cancer vaccines. As you know Israel also has a method to change cancer cells back to normal cells.
I wish I new how to make more people comprehend that research affects, benefits all humanity sooner or later.
Sadly most people lack foresight, vision, the ability to comprehend research is why humans live longer and better quality life’s.
Sadly the Regan’s did not understand until Ronald was diagnosed.
