We are excited to share the news that Emmanuelle Charpentier, 2015 Hansen Family Award winner, was awarded the 2020 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for her groundbreaking work in genome editing (i.e. the targeted and precise modification of genetic material with the help of certain enzymes) together with Jennifer A. Doudna.
