Jennifer Doudna wins 2020 Nobel Prize in chemistry
Biochemist Jennifer Doudna, a professor at UC Berkeley and faculty scientist at the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab), is co-winner of the 2020 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for “the development of a method for genome editing.”
She shares the Nobel Prize with co-discoverer Emmanuelle Charpentier, who currently serves as the scientific and managing director of the Max Planck Unit for the Science of Pathogens in Berlin. Together, they form the first all-woman research team to win a Nobel Prize.
“On behalf of the Berkeley Lab community, I extend my warmest congratulations to Jennifer Doudna for receiving the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. She is an exceptional scientist, and her groundbreaking research will inspire the next generation of scientists to take on challenges that both push the boundaries of knowledge and benefit humanity,” said Berkeley Lab Director Mike Witherell.
