A startup cofounded by a 30-year-old just got $38 million to revolutionize the way we transplant organs

Egenesis, a startup that’s using the gene-editing tool CRISPR to make pig organs viable for transplants into people, just raised $38 million. The company, which launched back in 2015 and is co-founded by Harvard geneticist George Church and 30-year old Luhan Yang, wants to knock out certain genes in pigs that could cause diseases or organ rejection in humans, making it possible for those pig organs to be transplanted.
