Britt Adamson named 2020 Searle Scholar for studies of genome editing

Posted Apr 29, 2020

One of 15 early-career scientists chosen this year, Adamson was selected for the project, “Mapping the Processes of Genome Editing in Human Cells.” She studies the organization and function of biological pathways in human cells using genetics, with a focus on understanding how cells respond to damaged DNA, a key part of genome editing.

Adamson, who joined the Princeton faculty in 2018, was selected from a group of 199 nominees from 139 research institutions.
