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.
