Audrone Lapinaite

Assistant Professor
Arizona State University

Audrone (Audrey) Lapinaite, PhD, is leading a research laboratory at Arizona State University and Biodesign Institute. She earned her PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), Heidelberg (Germany) in 2013. In 2015 Audrey was awarded a Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP) fellowship and she joined Prof. Jennifer Doudna and Prof. Jamie Cate laboratories as a postdoctoral fellow.

Audrey’s laboratory focusses not only on the design of next generation precision genome editing tools with enhanced specificity for biomedical applications but also on understanding the molecular mechanisms of recently discovered novel bacterial immune systems with the goal of harnessing them for new genome, transcriptome and epitranscriptome editing technologies.
