Conference by Annie Sainsard-Chanet on June 23, 2022

New event organized by Les Amis de l’IHES on Thursday June 23, 2022 at 5:00 pm (French Time) at IHES

Annie SAINSARD-CHANET gave a conference (in French) in hybrid format, entitled:

Molecular scissors: a biological revolution

“The 2020 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, awarded to Jennifer Doudna and Emmanuelle Charpentier, has been awarded for the development of the CrispR-Cas9 or molecular scissors tool. With this tool, it is now possible to modify the genes of any type of cell, with an ease and precision previously unimaginable. The potential of CRISPR opens up unprecedented avenues for research in biology and in the medical field but poses ethical questions, particularly with regards to the manipulation of the genome of the human species.”
The conference was followed by a musical interlude with Christian Ivaldi and Sébastien Mongrand (four hand Piano).
