The Gene Solution
by Mike Rochelle View author's profile page

Overview


A doctor and his team will go down in history as the man who rid the world of disease… but at what cost? In The Gene Solution, Mike Rochelle's breakout science fiction novel, Dr. Tripp Galloway finds himself struggling to balance his dreams of curing diseases with his morality. His team is on the cutting edge of medicine, using gene editing to wipe diseases out of history. Behind closed doors, he partners with a wealthy Russian Oligarch with a penchant for violence and the desire to have a family. The arrangement is simple; Tripp creates perfect babies in order to keep saving the world. The doctor must navigate through convincing the FDA, the country, and his team that the risk is worth the reward. As Tripp wades through the murky waters of modern science, we come to find out that the genetics are easy but playing God is very, very hard. The product of years of experience, The Gene Solution is filled with groundbreaking science and powerful ethical challenges. The Gene Solution tackles head-on the quagmire that is genetic editing for humans.

Description


A deep sequencing of The Gene Solution What would you do to make your future children perfect? Technology has reached the point where anything is possible in terms of the human body. The real question is, should anything be possible? What are the trade-offs? In New York City, an OB/GYN group, led by Dr. Tripp Galloway, conducts clinical trials to cure rare diseases. These clinical trials are expensive, time-consuming and daunting. If they are successful, diseases such as sickle cell and cystic fibrosis could be a thing of the past. The only things standing in their way are the U.S. government, the FDA and public opinion. Across the globe, Slavomir Krukov is running a shipping conglomerate. On the surface, Slavomir is the epitome of success. He runs an empire, spars with Putin and travels the globe. Just below lies a yearning for a family; the one thing he can't have. Together, Tripp and Slavomir strike a deal to help each other. Using CRISPR/Cas9 technology, Tripp and his associates create perfect babies for Slavomir and anyone willing to pay. In return, the clinical trials receive funding and Tripp is launched into the spotlight as the most famous doctor in America. This arrangement becomes more than anyone bargains for as we watch history unfold. This book tackles the idea of DNA and gene editing in order to solve cancer, fertility, medical and humanitarian issues while looking at the social implications.
