Jennifer Doudna, winner of the 2016 L’Oréal-UNESCO prize


Jennifer Doudna, professor at UC Berkeley, co-discovered the CRISPR /cas9 technology, in collaboration with French Emmanuelle Charpentier.

This technology not only allows you to modify the genome of any species, easily and at a lower cost, but also allows you to modify the development of new approaches in genetic engineering, with huge potential benefits.

On March 24th, she will receive in Paris, along with Emmanuelle Charpentier, the 2016 L’Oréal-UNESCO prize which distinguishes exceptional women scientists.
