Fyodor Urnov

 

 


 

Fyodor Urnov is a "genome editor" – he works on genetically engineering human cells to treat severe disease. An associate adjunct professor in the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology at UC Berkeley, for the past 14 years he has taught genetics, biochemistry, and general biology, and prior to that he taught genetics at Brown, where he won a Presidential Award for Excellence in Teaching. Fyodor is a team leader at Sangamo BioSciences. In 2014, he was placed by Thomson Reuters on the list of “The World’s Most Influential Scientific Minds,” but that pales next to the fact that he is awed by the opportunity to teach with Jasper.
