23rd Annual John F. Enders Lecture
CRISPR Biology and Biotechnology: Science, Applications and Ethics
On Apr 27, Jennifer Doudna, PhD, will present the 23rd Annual John F. Enders Lecturer at 12 noon in the Folkman Auditorium. Dr. Doudna is the Li Ka Shing Chancellor’s Chair in Biomedical and Health Sciences at UC Berkeley and an Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Prof. Doudna’s research seeks to understand how RNA molecules control the expression of genetic information. Her research led to insights about CRISPR-Cas9-mediated bacterial immunity that enabled this system to be harnessed for efficient genome engineering in animals and plants, creating a transformative technology that is revolutionizing the fields of genetics, molecular biology and medicine.

The John F. Enders Lecture was established by the research faculty in 1992 to recognize excellence in research in the tradition of John F. Enders, the Nobel Laureate virologist whose brilliant achievements continue to inspire us today.
