The National DNA and Cystic Fibrosis: 50 Years of Research

It's been 50 years since Cambridge scientists Francis Crick and Jim Watson unveiled the most important discovery of the 20th century: the basic structure of DNA. While it's true that their discovery opened up a world of understanding, what have we learned in that time? Has this discovery gotten us any closer to ridding humans of genetic disease? Two sisters battling cystic fibrosis tell their story and share their hopes and dreams for the future of gene therapy.
