The mark of a job well done for a CRISPR lobbyist? Silence in Congress

It’s arguably the most cutting-edge and potentially lucrative area of biomedical science and now, to protect their investments, companies commercializing CRISPR genome editing technology are looking to shore up their Washington bonafides.
