Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer Doudna

Princess of Asturias Award for Technical & Scientific Research 2015

Statement by Emmanuelle Charpentier on being bestowed with the 2015 Princess of Asturias Award for Technical and Scientific Research:

“I am truly honored and very moved to receive this wonderful recognition from the remarkable people of the Princess of Asturias Foundation. Curiosity, a quest for knowledge and understanding has always been a strong drive in my life. Trying to shed some more light on the mysteries of life became a mission. I feel privileged to research on the fascinating world of microbes and look forward to unravel further the secrets of their and thus our lives.
I hope that this award recognising the fundamental science behind the discovery of the transformable CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing technology provides a positive message to the funding organisations to support basic science and to the young generation to motivate them to pursue the path of an academic career.”
