Today we announced that Vertex and CRISPR Therapeutics AG will co-develop and co-commercialize CTX001, an investigational gene editing treatment, as part of our previously annouced collaboration aimed at the discovery and development of new gene editing treatments that use the CRISPR/Cas9 technology.
