Congratulations to Postdoc Fuguo Jiang who was honored with the RNA Society/Scaringe Award, an award that was established to recognize the achievement of young scientists engaged in RNA research and to encourage them to pursue a career in the field of RNA. Fuguo was recognized for making great strides towards understanding the CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing complex, working alongside his colleagues in the Doudna lab. He has combined X-ray crystallographic data and single-particle cryo-electron microscopy approaches to describe the mechanism of DNA target recognition and key structural states of the Type II CRISPR-Cas9 family. These proteins are powerful tools from genome editing in a wide variety of organisms.

Congratulations to Postdoc Chun-Hao Huang who was selected as UNLEASH SDG talent and one of the winners selected to create solutions to UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Welcome to Ko-Chuan Lee who has joined the Doudna Lab as a visiting scholar. She will be with the lab until the summer of 2018. Welcome!

Doudna Lab alum, Rachel Haurwitz, made the “35 under 35” list in MIT Tech Review. Congratulations, Rachel!

Natalia Orlova and Brady Cress have joined the Doudna Lab as new postdocs. Welcome, Natalia and Brady!
