I am taking a class in which I am able to choose a scientific topic to explore. I want to explore potential HIV-1 treatment via human genome editing. My goal is to help cure/treat HIV. I don't want to fundamentally change what a human is from birth (such as changing their gender) because from my understanding that would be considered trying to "improve" on Allah's creation (which I am NOT trying to do and is obviously very wrong to do).
From some searches, I found that, in general, humans are allowed to find solutions to harms. However, I want a specific, definitive answer to this type of question. Thank you.
