DUE TO UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES THE CHANCELLOR'S DISTINGUISHED LECTURE WITH DR. JENNIFER DOUDNA ON FEBRUARY 21ST HAS BEEN CANCELLED. 

WE HOPE TO RESCHEDULE DR. DOUDNA FOR A FUTURE DATE SOON.​


Gene editing with CRISPR technology is transforming biology.  Understanding the underlying chemical mechanisms of RNA-guided DNA and RNA cleavage provides a foundation for both conceptual advances and technology development. Dr. Doudna will discuss how bacterial CRISPR adaptive immune systems inspire creation of powerful genome engineering tools, enabling advances in both fundamental biology and applications in medicine. In addition, she will discuss the ethical challenges of some of these applications. Join us for an exciting evening with Dr. Doudna, followed by a reception with light refreshments. Please RSVP by clicking the Register button above.

Please direct all questions to Kelly Mason​, Assistant Director of Events & Partnerships.
