See Dr. Doudna’s video interview with Dan Rather in iBiology’s Conversations in Science Series as well as her talk on the discovery of the CRISPR-Cas9 gene expression system: Genome Engineering with CRISPR-Cas9: Birth of a Breakthrough Technology .

Welcome Liz O’Brien, who has joined the Doudna Lab as a postdoc!

The Doudna Lab welcomes new postdocs: Shrutee Jakhanwal and Ben Rubin!

Congratulations to new graduates Lucas, Janice, Steven, Addison and Akshay! We will miss you and we look forward to hearing about all your new adventures!

Welcome to Basem Al-Shayeb, Connor Tsuchida and Joy Wang who have joined the Doudna Lab as graduate students!

Welcome Jenny Hamilton, who has joined the Doudna Lab as a postdoc!

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.
