Dr Lydia Teboul, winner of the 2020 ISTT 3Rs Prize

Dr Lydia Teboul has been awarded the 2020 International Society for Transgenic Technologies (ISTT) 3Rs Prize. This prize recognises Lydia’s work in developing a technique that implements the reduction principle of the 3Rs, to reduce the number of animals used in research. Gene editing has vastly improved in recent years, accelerating genetic research. Specifically, CRISPR-Cas9 […]

Variability in Genome Editing Outcomes: Challenges for Research Reproducibility and Clinical Safety

Researchers at MRC Harwell, alongside their colleagues at Université de Strasbourg and Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health, have published a review in Molecular Therapy. The review explores the reliability and challenges of genome editing application in both research and in clinic. Genome editing (GE) has revolutionised biomedical research. GE tools induce a break […]
