This Week in #Health #Tech #Design by @CalamineDesign - Daylighting the most intriguing news, tools and resources for startups and product designers in healthcare.

I just performed the first steps in a gene-editing experiment!  No, I haven’t magically turned into a genetic engineering wizard, I did however, use Synthego’s new CRISPR Knockout Guide Designer to 1) Identify the genome and gene I want to target, 2) Receive a recommendation on the piece of RNA I would need and 3) placed the order (in my cart) that would allow me to perform the actual experiment.  If all that doesn’t make sense no worries I had to read this article like 5 times. Just know that this is a huge leap in the gene-editing space and represents a Bessemer-esque improvement to today’s research and experimentation capabilities in genetics. 
It’s been a busy few weeks, so apologies for leaving you hanging, but seriously, what is going on! Self-proclaimed healthcare disruptor Athena Health is being disrupted a bit, fake med-devices dupe hackers and we found some sweet resources to get your creative juices flowing.
Happy reading!
