Congratulations to Dani on the Helen Hay Whitney fellowship!
Dani received the Helen Hay Whitney Fellowship The Helen Hay Whitney Foundation and her research goals are to develop new technologies that advance our understanding of fundamental biology, as well as increase the safety and efficacy of gene editing in human cells. She plans to approach this in two ways. First, how does chromatin state affect CRISPR-Cas activity at a single cell level? Second, can we manipulate the chromatin landscape to increase gene-editing strategies?
