We escaped!

August 2019

Our first lab outing to an escape room was a huge success (especially with 4 first-timers). Crush Depth at Trapology was great. Next: to complete all escape rooms in Boston..

"If you can cook,
you can science"

April 2019

A very belated lab holiday celebration! During our cooking class at Eataly we learned how to make fresh cavatelli pasta with a garlic, parmesan, sausage, and broccoli rabe sauce. Delizioso!

Journal Club: Class 1 CRISPR systems

April 2019

Serendipitous day to choose papers that discuss Class 1 CRISPR systems for our Journal Club, given the recent publication from the Ke and Zhang labs (describing the use of Cas3 for long-range genome editing in human cells). Assist from the IGI with the CRISPR cards.

We're hiring!

March 2019

We are recruiting motivated researchers for a Research Technician I or II position. This is a great opportunity to gain 2 years of research experience in the genome editing field, especially for those who are looking for additional training prior to applying to graduate school. Link to application here. 

Fancy new lab logo
