Emmanuelle Charpentier is considered one of the most innovative researchers in the field of RNA regulation and the molecular biology of infectious diseases worldwide. Her work on bacterial pathogens, for example, and the ability of bacteria to defend themselves against pathogens, has generated much attention. At Hannover Medical School and the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research she would combine basic research into molecular mechanisms with translations into clinical therapies and promote clinical infectiology, a field recently neglected in Germany.
