Open lectures by Emmanuelle Charpentier and Sigrid Bratlie

On September 1st, 2023, our group attended open lectures at the University of Oslo given by Emmanuelle Charpentier and Sigrid Bratlie.

Emmanuelle Charpentier’s lecture was titled “The CRISPR-Cas genome editing revolution: the power of microbiology”, in which she talked about the discovery of the CRISPR-Cas9 mechanism and its development, from which she received numerous prestigious awards, including the Nobel Prize (together with Jennifer Doudna, whom our team member Pavel met while attending the 9th CRISPR Frontiers meeting in August).

Sigrid Bratlie’s lecture “CRISPR at the intersection of science and society” addressed some fundamental questions related to CRISPR as it moves from lab environments out into the world.

After the talks, there was also a Q&A session with discussion and a chance to ask questions.

It was a rare and amazing opportunity to get to listen to a Nobel Prize winner in our field of work. 🙂
