EAM Congratulates Emmanuelle Charpentier for Jointly Winning the 2020 Nobel Prize in Chemistry

In the name of EAM we are delighted to congratulate our member Emmanuelle Charpentier, who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry last week. Her work - together with others including Jennifer Doudna from USA who shared the prize with her - pioneered the "genetic scissors" gene-editing technology, which has already been extensively used for research and applications. It should be noted that this is the first time that the Nobel prize in Chemistry is awarded to two women. Together with Charpentier and Doudna there are only 7 women in the honourable list of 186 Nobel laureates in Chemistry.

We wish Emmanuelle continued success in her important scientific work and in directing the Max Plank Institute in Berlin.
