Leader in Innovation
Jennifer Doudna is a professor of both chemistry and molecular and cell biology at Berkeley, and a founding CRSB faculty member.
Her fundamental discoveries about the CRISPR/Cas9 system are leading to new tools for DNA editing that are revolutionizing genomics research.
"[A] beautiful story of fundamental science and how it enabled a transformative technology in gene editing. The application of the technique is likely to be as important for genetic research as PCR, one of the most important tools in the field."
