CBI celebrates 2020 Chemistry Nobel prize

What a happy coincidence that on the day of the announcement that Jennifer Doudna and Emmanuelle Charpentier were awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for basic science at the interface of Chemistry and Biology, CBI’s monthly Chalk Talk featured the labs of two women, Amanda Woerman and Jeanne Hardy. Jeanne took a moment to mark the historic occasion, expressing both the happiness felt by many who are “really thrilled to be doing science at a time when women are able to do great science and be recognized,” and also encouragement to the entire community to continue to find ways to make science welcoming to everyone.
