The IGI is composed of diverse researchers at the University of California, Berkeley and the University of California, San Francisco. Together, our scientists have powerful combined expertise. They conduct world-class research, driven by the real possibility to use genome engineering to treat human diseases and end hunger.

In addition to our scientific efforts, the IGI is committed to advancing public understanding of genome engineering, providing resources for the broader community, and guiding the ethical use of these technologies.

The Innovative Genomics Institute believes in the potential of genome engineering to solve some of humanity’s greatest problems.
