Quintin Hogg Trust- Gene Editors of the Future: A Life Sciences student development programme

This is an excellent opportunity to explore the basics and potential of CRISPR technology through the University of Westminster's Quintin Hogg Trust - Gene Editors of the Future Programme. Genome engineering lab of School of Life Sciences ( is excited to offer to Masters and Level 6 UG students the opportunity to work alongside experts right from the basics to advanced stages of gene editing and biomedical engineering. We also encourage interested students from Level 5 to register and benefit from the online sessions however, please note that Masters and Level 6 only will have access to hands on laboratory sessions due to limited space availability in the laboratory.

CRISPR technology which is set to be the biggest scientific breakthrough of the decade (also won the first ever all-women Nobel Prize in 119 years of the Award's history) allows us to rewrite the genetic content precisely in living cells. CRISPR/Cas9 technology in particular offers promising strategies for treatment and cure of inherited diseases and certain cancers. Applications of the CRISPR tool box is endless including, biosensing and diagnosis of infections (look up this simplest SARS-CoV-2 diagnostic test And most importantly, CRISPR technology is one of the most sought-after skills in biomedical research.

The programme will be delivered in three phases. You will be required to spend 2h/fortnight for the online sessions till December 2020, independent work in the month of January 2021 and expected work will double during hands on laboratory activities in groups from February 2021. Both online and hands on training sessions are flexible and will be delivered without any clash in the timetabled learning sessions. There is no assessment linked to this programme but participation in at least 70% of the sessions and assigned activities is required to earn the certificate
