    Emmanuelle Charpentier biography

    Keynote speaker Emmanuelle Charpentier is a French microbiologist, a biochemist, as well as a geneticist. Furthermore, she was the winner of the Chemistry Nobel Prize in 2020, together with Jennifer Doudna. They also co-won the 2020 Wolf Prize in Medicine. These two remarkable women have successfully developed new genome editing techniques.

    Following her studies in France, Emmanuelle began an intense scientific career in both Europe and the US. Emmanuelle has spent the majority of her professional career studying disease basic processes. Her research has put a strong emphasis on infections caused by Gram-positive bacterial pathogens, including staphylococci, Listeria, and streptococci.

    Emmanuelle has conducted plenty of lab work on the CRISPR-Cas9 acquired immune system in various bacteria. Her research laid the groundwork for the creation of a unique, extremely flexible, and specialized editing and engineering technique for genomes. The CRISPR-Cas technology is transforming life science studies. CRISPR-Cas has created a whole new potential for biotechnologies and biomedical gene therapies, with far-reaching implications for society and mankind.
