When I had the opportunity, I knew I had to ask Jennifer Doudna, inventor of CRISPR, what she thought the most powerful application of biotechnology would be to make a more sustainable world. As a huge proponent of our planet's microbiome being one of the most valuable assets in managing climate change, it was incredible to hear that such a prominent, influential scientist has the same mindset. Listen in here, and the full session is hosted at the Synthego Corporation's CRISPR office hours! She also had these words of advice for aspiring scientists: Go for it, never let anyone derail you, you need to take risks to do interesting work, and always follow your instincts. What an incredible person and scientist, my heart literally started pounding when she started talking about the microbiome! With our Light Wand kits shipping out soon with little microbiome boosting sachets, I feel extra charged that we are on the right track.
