Jennifer Doudna for 1843 Magazine

Jennifer Doudna, American Biochemist and co-inventor of CRISPR, a gene editing technique that has been called one of the most significant discoveries in the history of biology - allowing genome editing in living organisms.  There is a huge ethical consideration taking place with regards to CRISPR, as it has already been successfully used on human embryos and will give us the ability to add desirable traits or drop undesirable traits in humans as well as potentially cure previously incurable diseases.  Photographed at UC Berkeley for The Economist's 1843 Magazine.
