Jennifer Doundna is a person behind “biotechnology discovery of 21st century” – CRISPR-based genome editing. Besides great science, she is highly involved in public debate on current state of CRISPR technology and ethical issues, related to genome editing of human germline (see her testimony for US Congress). Finally, she is involved in commercialization battle of CRISPR-based technologies.

This video was recorded on the recent 2015 Cold Spring Harbor Symposium “21st Century Genetics”. I especially like the story behind of discovery and her optimisms about clinical trials. Highly recommended to watch!
