Emmanuelle Charpentier (Max-Planck-Society, Berlin, Germany) and Jennifer Doudna (University of California, Berkeley, CA, USA) were awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2020 for the development of a method for genome editing. These two researchers met in 2011 and began a single scientific collaboration that crystalized in a publication in Science in June 2012 where they proposed to use an immune defence system invented by the prokaryotes as a tool for triggering genome editing in all living organisms. Their proposal was based on years of previous basic research led by many microbiologists, notably Francis Mojica (University of Alicante) who first described the system ten years before and invented the name of CRISPR. In this webinar I will explain the reasons why these two researchers were awarded, their merits and will illustrate the impact of this disruptive technology with several examples from our own research at CNB-CSIC, where we apply the CRISPR tools to advance in our understanding of the non-coding genome and in the generation of patient-specific animal models of human rare diseases.

The experimental part of the 2020 Nobel Prize in physics has been awarded to Reinhard Genzel and Andrea Ghez, whose decades-long observations have provided us with evidence beyond doubt that there is a four million solar mass black hole at the centre of the Milky Way. In my talk I will provide a brief overview of the background and history of this discovery as well as its implications and current lines of research.

Para qu sirve hacer un Plan de Igualdad de Gnero en un centro CSIC? El ejemplo del Institut de Cincies del Mar
Enlace al coloquio

Esther Garcs Slvia Donoso

Department of Marine Biology and Oceanography. Institut de Cinces del Mar

La promocin de la igualdad de gnero en la investigacin y la innovacin se integra al marco regulatorio de la comisin europea dentro de su Estrategia para 2020-2025. Este marco regulatorio, que incluye directivas vinculantes, se aplican ampliamente en todo el mercado laboral, incluido el sector de la investigacin. Debido a las peculiaridades del sector de la investigacin, se necesitan acciones especficas para superar las barreras estructurales a la igualdad de gnero y persistentes brechas. El Institut de Cincies del Mar, en el marco del proyecto europeo Leading Towards Sustainable Gender Equality Plans in research performing organisations (LeTGEPs) ha iniciado la elaboracin de su Plan de Igualdad de Gnero. El proyecto busca disear acciones e implementar medidas que conduzcan a un cambio institucional sistmico y abordar el sesgo de gnero en las organizaciones participantes en el mismo. En la formulacin del Plan, se usarn varias herramientas europeas y a la vez responder a un nutrido marco normativo de la Ley Orgnica 3/2007. A la vez, el Plan necesita una articulacin con el Plan de Igualdad entre mujeres y hombres del CSIC, institucin a la que el ICM pertenece. La disparidad de marcos de referencia, instrumentos y enfoques no puede, sin embargo, condicionar la aspiracin de tener un Plan que responda plenamente y sea congruente con la realidad del centro. As, en la presentacin, expondremos los retos que nos enfrentamos para generar verdaderos cambios institucionales.
