The 2015 Gruber Prize in Genetics is being awarded to Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer Doudna for their pioneering work on CRISPR biology. This prize is presented annually at the American Society in Human Genetics annual meeting, which will be held in Baltimore this year in October.
If you're not familiar with the Gruber Prizes, they are awarded in several disciplines including genetics and they include a $500,000 cash prize, so it's quite an award. Congratulations once again to Drs. Charpentier and Doudna!
