Meet the scientists

Emmanuelle Charpentier ( 1968, Juvisy-sur-Orge, France)  and Jennifer A. Doudna ( 1964, Washington, DC, USA)

 

Emmanuelle Charpentier is Ph.D. 1995 from Institut Pasteur, Paris, and director of the Max Planck Unit for the Science of Pathogens, Berlin.  Jennifer A. Doudna is  Ph.D. 1989 from Harvard Medical School, Boston, Professor at the University of California, Berkeley, USA and Investigator, Howard Hughes Medical Institute.

 

Together, they have been awarded with the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2020 for the development of a method for genome editing. They have discovered one of gene technology’s sharpest tools: the CRISPR/Cas9 genetic scissors. Using these, researchers can change the DNA of animals, plants and microorganisms with extremely high precision. This technology has had a revolutionary impact on the life sciences, is contributing to new cancer therapies and may make the dream of curing inherited diseases come true.
