Is there any KD research investigating CRISPR?

I think professor Matthew Wood at Oxford has a student project using CRISPR for KD.

According to Matthew Wood's website, his group is working on Parkinson's, DMD, and SMA, but not SBMA or Kennedy's Disease.

Dan, my apologies my memory isn't what it once was and I don't remember exactly what I read that lead me to think Dr. Matthew Wood might actively be working on this. But a quick search turned up a document that suggests there was interest by him in starting an SBMA CRISPR project in collaboration with the Genome Institute of Singapore's Dr Ng Shyh Chang who might be the initiator of the effort. I'd need to do more searching to see if I can find anything more about this.
